Update: After some debate as to whether Hollenshead said “No, we’ll be out this year” or “No, won’t be out this year,” Geoff Keighly, who talked to Hollenshead on GameTrailers TV about Rage, has confirmed on his Twitter that Hollenshead said Rage would not be released this year. Bummer.
Original story: Not much is known about id Software’s upcoming title Rage, however in the latest episode of GameTrailers TV, id CEO Todd Hollenshead responded to the question surrounding the possible release of Rage and it seems he’s confident enough to confirm that it is coming out in 2009.
While discussing the gameplay of Rage, Hollenshead also clarified that it wasn’t necessarily a racing game or anything like Fallout but instead will provide vast environments with instances dropping players into scenarios that will include tightened gameplay. Rage will be published by EA and is expected to be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac.
