During an interview with Shacknews about the upcoming Xbox 360 port of class-based multiplayer shooter Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, id Software co-owner Kevin Cloud gave a brief update on what's going on with id Tech 5, the studio's next major game engine.
According to Cloud, id is currently in the process of preparing id Tech 5 for third parties interested in licensing it, and things are "moving along great." Cloud notes that id has the engine running on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 at "60 hertz" and that it looks "really good" on all three platforms.
Because id Tech 5 applies megatexture technology to the entire game world, all texturing can be unique—a feature that allows for a look "you just can't get in any other game," according to Cloud. He elaborates, "Once you see it you go '[expletive], I have not seen that anywhere else.' We're really proud of what we've put together there."
