Speaking at QuakeCon today, id’s John Carmack said that there may be room for a fully-fledged sequel to Quake III Arena, but it’ll be down to how gamers respond to upcoming free-to-play browser shooter Quake Live.

“The door is not completely shut for another Quake project, and I’d say probably the success of Quake Live is going to determine whether or not we do another Quake Arena project,” said Carmack.

“But right now the publishers aren’t all that interested in a multiplayer project on there.”
