PC the “junior partner in the cross-platform strategy”, says id’s Carmac

Speaking with Tom’s Games at QuakeCon, id boss John Carmac said that in terms of what platform the company should be focusing on, PC gaming was now “junior partner in the cross-platform strategy.”

“We still think the PC is a market worth supporting, but we’re not making decision around the PC,” he said.

“It’s probably more of the junior partner in the cross-platform strategy, although obviously, our day-to-day development is predominately on the PC.”

Carmac talks about the hazards of digital distribution, as well as how three DVDs would be needed to make Rage look as good on the PC as it does on PlayStation 3, through the link.

    I find that is more interesting:

    If Rage comes out and has great numbers, then the Rage team will work on a sequel. If not, we may shift to another Quake or Doom title. There are a lot of things that we just don’t know yet, and it all depends on the success of Rage and the success of Quake Live.

    Btw: Carmac? You’ll be cursed now or something.
