John Carmack says that the promised mode tools for Rage are still coming. Carmack isn’t pulling any punches when he says, “I think we made poor decisions on this all year.” Originally, the tools were supposed to ship alongside the game when it was released in October 2011.
Carmack admits that work on the BFG Edition of Doom III did take some time to complete and this was the same window that could have gone to finishing the Mod Tools for Rage. As for what is next for Rage, it is hard to say.
While success has eluded the title somewhat, that does not mean it is over for the title. We are doubtful that you will see any additional DLC or add-ons for Rage, as sources tell us that id is working the new project and everyone is working on that.
