Rage gets a release date

Written by David Stellmack


Still some waiting till it arrives
During Quakecon this past weekend id Software announced a release date for its upcoming title, Rage. The announcement flies smack into the past id philosophy that a title it is working on will “ship when it is done.” Apparently this time, id has decided to at least give players an idea of when to expect the title to ship.

The date selected for release is September 13th, 2011 for North America, followed by a European release on September 15th, 2011. That is the release date as of today, but as always things could change; but we get the impression that this release date is pretty solid, given that it is a year away.

The title itself will be released on a variety of platforms including the PC and Mac as well as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 console systems. An iPhone version was also announced at Quakecon with a release date that is said to be ahead of the rest of the platforms. Apparently, there will be little difference among the releases, as all titles are said to look pretty much the same and can all run at 60 frames-per-second.

While the release of Rage is still a long time off, what we have seen so far is impressive. Some are already calling Rage perhaps the best game that id Software has ever built, but till it is released we don’t really know if this will be the case. The good news is that we will not have much longer to wait for it to arrive, as we have already done a good part of the waiting.
