And Android gaming just started looking a whole lot better in one tweet. ID Software’s John Carmack has just slyly announced that they would be porting Rage to Android by posting the following to his Twitter account:

I’m going to regret having “ios” in all my type names when I port Rage Mobile to Android.

You should be excited for two reasons:

  1. Rage looks awesome.
  2. This will encourage many other developers from high profile studios to make their way to Android.


ID Software, if you aren’t informed, are the folks behind the Quake, Doom, and Wolfenstein series. If you know those games (at least back in their respective primes) you’ll know that they will be bringing nothing but quality. (Yes, folks, I have played Doom 3 and Quake 4. And for the record, I actually liked Doom 3. So there!)

Anywho, this comes after we originally suspected they’d be porting Rage to Android back in September when it was revealed they were looking for an Android developer to join their team. We’re probably still a long way off from that glorious day, but at least we know it’s coming.
