Rage is “awesome” – we can verify that for you right now. But what’s the next big “awesome” thing from id Software? DOOM 4, innit.

“It’s gonna be cool. It’s gonna be awesome,” the firm’s creative director Tim Willits told X360A at a Bethesda press event recently.

“Hopefully, it’ll be even more awesome than Rage. For us as a company, every game needs to be better than the last. I truly believe that Rage is the best game we’ve ever made. When we made Doom 3 I said, Doom 3 is the best game we’ve ever made and Rage will be better.

“Hopefully. Doom 4 needs to be even more awesome than Rage.”

On Friday, Bethesda’s Pete Hines said it was D4 and Rage that will show id’s “true potential”.

News on the game, however, is being kept mum until Quakecon in August. But in the meantime, it’s working on the post-apocalyptic FPS. And it looks so “awesome”. Get our interview with Willits from the European Bethesda pre-E3 press event here.

Rage releases next year on PC, 360, Mac and PS3.
