No new IPs from id Software for a long time

Looks like id Software will be resting on their laurels for the next decade.

Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine (via CVG), John Carmack revealed that if you’re after anything other than Quake, Doom, Wolfenstein or Rage from his studio in the next ten years, you’re out of luck.

“We do already have more IPs than we can exploit,” said Carmack. “I doubt we’re going to do another IP. It’s scary to say it, but maybe not in the next decade even, because we want to support Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake — and hopefully we can add Rage onto that — and I don’t want five teams here. Three is scary enough.”

Carmack’s on stage at QuakeCon, as we type this. Doom 4, anyone?
