Doom 3: BFG Edition 'could have hit Wii U if there was enough time' - Carmack

Doom 3: BFG developer id Software has revealed that it would have loved to release the game on other formats - including PS Vita and Wii U - if time was on its side.

Speaking with Go Nintendo, id's John Carmack expressed his desire to see the game on as many formats as possible, but stated that time isn't on his side, "I wish that we could deploy this on a bunch of other code bases. I love platforms...I love looking for the fun things to do on different ones. I've been bringing up quietly at a bunch of the meetings."

"You know," Carmack continued, "we could make a Vita version, a Wii U version, an iPhone/Android version. All of these would be reasonable platforms to take this technology...we do have a very busy development schedule and nothing else is really planned for that."

Carmack is a busy man, currently working on Doom 3: BFG Edition and getting involved with the Oculus Rift headset project.
