RAGE Still Planned as a Large Franchise - No Word on OthersCategory: Gaming

Id Software was talking about RAGE being a new franchise leading up to the game's launch last year, but since then has remained quiet. The studio has not revealed any sales data on RAGE or what the future will hold for it. Bethesda's Pete Hines said the company hopes RAGE can become a big franchise for id, but is otherwise not saying much. Hines did say Bethesda is looking at things to do with RAGE, but when people ask about id Software it is typically concerning the other franchises. DOOM 4 has been asked about for years, but little is known about it. Earlier this year some supposed screenshots of the game leaked right around the time DOOM 4 was said to be canceled, but Bethesda quickly shot down that rumor. We do know the team behind RAGE has been moved to DOOM 4, but other than Hines saying the game is being worked on, that is pretty much all we know.
We also have not heard anything about Prey 2, which also had cancellation rumors fly around. Bethesda yet again shot down those, but Hines said the company is trying to get things worked out with developer Human Head Studios. He did not say anything else other than to say Prey 2 will not arrive this year. The Bethesda website does show Prey 2 as in development, so until something happens, you can be sure it is being worked on.
