id Software is no stranger to what the gaming industry likes to call ‘AAA’ titles.  Having created some of the most recognizable franchises in gaming history. When id Software talks “triple A”, gamers listen…

id Software creators, of Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, and more are preparing to start working on 3 ‘AAA’ projects. During id’s keynote at this week’s QuakeCon, co-founder John Carmack talked ambitious new titles, and how the recent Zenimax buyout has helped bring about that ambition:

“The big question is what are those three IPs going to be? Is it going to be a Rage 2, a Wolfenstein title, a Quake title? We really don’t know yet.”

“We are staffing up a third team internally,”

“We will eventually be producing three AAA titles.”

“We still have this problem of having more good IPs than we can develop, even if we do staff up to three teams.”

“We have more resources to make steps that we wouldn’t make [if] left to our own,” he said.
