Wanting to play a RAGE demo before it launches in September? Chances are looking slim, Jim.

Bethesda PR VP Pete Hines has told VG247 that, whilst not fully ruling it out, a demo for RAGE is very unlikely.

“It’s something we look at for every game and we do it where possible and where appropriate,” Hines told us in a phone interview today.

“But to be perfectly honest, from a technical standpoint, it isn’t always possible. I don’t see a demo for RAGE on the cards.”

Hines added: “I guess it’s not a zero percent chance, but it’s somewhere down on that end of the spectrum.”

Back at QuakeCon 2009, id boss Todd Hollenshead told us that while a multiplayer beta wasn’t likely, a single-player demo for PC and Mac could be.

RAGE releases on September 13 in the US and September 15 in Europe for PS3, 360 and PC.
