id’s Rage coming to Android?

Well, maybe. A job recruitment post over on Gamasutra details how id are looking for:

..talented and experienced programmer to help bring our next big Mobile game to the Android space.

This doesn’t necessarily have to mean Rage, but seeing Carmack demonstrate the iPhone’s capability of successfully running a watered down version of the PC game is certainly food for thought. Especially when you consider how similar the Android’s specs are to Apple’s iPhone.

id Software is looking for a talented and experienced programmer to help bring our next big Mobile game to the Android space. In addition to its 19 years of world renowned AAA game and technology creation, id Software has been an innovator in Mobile gaming with multiple top-rated, top-selling and critically acclaimed games across the iPhone, JAVA, Brew and DS platforms. id Software is exploring the Android space and looking for someone with strong Android experience who wants to pioneer with id Mobile.

The Android programmer is responsible for familiarizing themselves with existing id Mobile engines, bringing Mobile development to Android, developing requirements for new systems, engaging in iterative development in Java & C++, writing documentation and supporting the content developers professionally. The Android programmer should be proactive and prepared to take accountability for the development activities assigned.

No official announcement from id just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further developments.
