No Rage Planned for Android or WP7

id Software co-founder John Carmack this weekend has revealed in a pair of Twitter updates that there aren’t any current plans to bring Rage on mobile to either Android or Windows Phone 7. While he said he would “take a stab” at Android, he explained the firm wasn’t pledging itself to creating a port for Google’s OS; he implied later that time constraints were an issue. Dropping WP7 was a technical issue, however: the likelihood of a port for Microsoft were “very low” since he couldn’t write in C++ language like he could elsewhere.

In addition to explaining how the full version of Rage was limiting the amount of time he could devote to the iOS port. The app isn’t a one-for-one port of the computer and console game as the full title has 20GB of data and larger memory needs, but it will still be a “little slice” that gives a close recreation of the first-person shooter. It should be “unlike anything ever seen” on Apple’s iOS, he said, even though the devices are still well below the power of a PS3 or an Xbox 360.
