Quake coming to iPhone

id Software co-founder John Carmack has announced that the company will be bringing three Quake titles to the iPhone. Carmack adds that he may not be heavily involved in the projects, which should be mostly handled by other developers. In addition to the Quake offerings, id is also said to be contemplating an iPhone version of its next PC game, Rage. Wolfenstein RPG, Doom 2 RPG and Doom Classic are also slated as iPhone titles.

The Quake titles planned include Quake, Quake 2 and Quake Arena. The original PC series is generally considered one of the most influential amongst first-person shooters, having been the first to popularize 3D and online play. Development schedules for the ports have not been revealed, but Carmack does note that that he is hoping to test MegaTexture, part of the technology behind Rage, on the iPhone 3G S.
