Is the age of next-gen graphics coming to an abrupt end? Not according to id Software.

“For us personally, our biggest goal is – you can see it right now – we’re pushing on the fidelity, visually,” id lead designer Matt Hooper told Next-Gen. “For us, we’re doing things that we’ve never done before. That’s already a lot of eggs in the basket. As far as user-generated content, it’s not a huge consideration for us right now.”

What happened to modding, id? Also, does this mean we won’t be seeing a new Commander Keen on the Wii any time soon?
