id Software co-founder Tim Willits insisted at QuakeCon 2013 that Rage, the 2011 shooter that failed to make waves with fans and critics, is not dead as a property.
According to Willits, "I'm proud of what we did, I'm proud of the universe that we built. The franchise is not dead. We're not doing anything immediately with it, but when I designed the universe, I designed it in such a way that it would be easy to step back into. I'm still proud that we did something that was different--it wasn't like the games that we've done in the past."
Rage was released in September 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and earned a 6.5/10 score in Strategy Informer's .
