Could the Wii U see some love from id?
I wish that we could deploy this (Doom 3 BFG Edition) on a bunch of other code bases. I love platforms…I love looking for the fun things to do on different ones. I’ve been bringing up quietly at a bunch of the meetings, “You know, we could make a Vita version, a Wii U version, an iPhone/Android version.” All of these would be reasonable platforms to take this technology. …We do have a very busy development schedule and nothing else is really planned for that. - John Carmack
There’s every chance we could see something released for the Wii U down the road, the company have developed several games for Nintendo platforms including the NES, SNES & N64.
id have been developing games for more than 20 years. They’re best known for Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein.
A re-release of Doom 3 called Doom 3 BFG Edition will be released on October 16, 2012 in North America and three days later in Europe on October 19 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The BFG Edition will feature “greatly enhanced graphics”, better sound with more horror effects, a checkpoint save system, and support for 3D displays. The game will also include the previous expansion Resurrection of Evil and a new single player expansion pack called The Lost Mission. Additionally, it will include copies of the original Doom, and Doom 2. The BFG Edition will also feature the ability to use the flashlight while holding a weapon, in the form of the so-called armor-mounted flashlight. – Wikipedia
