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?
