But – and you knew there was a but – only if id Software has the time.
Hey kids! Have you ever wondered why your all time favourite game, next to Wii Sports and Raving Rabbids, is missing from the Wii line-up? Yes, of course we mean Doom 3: BFG Edition! Well, just know that id Software technical director, co-founder and all-round swell guy John Carmack says he’d love to make a Wii U version.
Heck, he’d love to make a version for every console, but time isn’t exactly kind as they have “a very busy development schedule”.
“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, 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,” says Carmack.
But hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
