Chance of a Rage demo: next to nil

September 13th and 15th, the NA and EU release dates for id Software’s Rage, are less than nine months away. Sadly, between now and then, the odds of a demo are extremely unlikely.

In a recent interview, Bethesda’s VP of PR Pete Hines said that while it’s something that’s considered for every game they publish, it isn’t always a possibility, then flat out saying: “I don’t see a demo for RAGE on the cards.”

Bummer, but not wanting to crush hope completely and wholly, he adds: “I guess it’s not a zero percent chance, but it’s somewhere down on that end of the spectrum.” So… pretty much crushed with a light pulse? Here’s hoping for a little game time with it at the slew of trade conventions headed our way. Of course E3 is in mind, but more likely it’ll have a playable presence at id’s own annual QuakeCon. But for the masses… over 230 days to go.
