id’s RAGE May Be Coming to Android Phones
Shooter pioneers id made a nice show of Rage running on the iPhone at QuakeCon (above), but Apple’s device may not be the only phone to house the game. A job posting at Gamasutra shows that the company is seeking a full-time Android programmer to join id’s offices. The description states it is “looking for a talented and experienced programmer to help bring our next big Mobile game to the Android space.”
It’s important to note here that this job description may not be about Rage. id Mobile, though a relatively small part of id’s overall business, has produced a few other games, and they may be planning another we haven’t heard about. On the other hand, Android phones are comparable to the iPhone in terms of processing power, and the developer seems keen to get Rage out on as many systems as possible. We’ll keep an ear to the ground for official word.
