Id Software is rounding up the old gang, or gangs in this case, to develop Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports of the highly anticipated (and nebulously dated
) PC-shooter, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
. Id's fellow Dallasites at Nerve Software, who previously worked on other Id projects like Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War
for Xbox and DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil
for the PC and Xbox, will be responsible for bringing the title to the Xbox 360 platform while Activision's very own Z-Axis, who most notably delivered Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX
, will handle PlayStation 3 duties.
The press release reveals that the console versions will feature 16-player multiplayer, whereas the PC version is slated to feature 24-players
. Nevertheless, we're heartened that the game -- which is being produced by Id Software but developed by Splash Damage -- will be coming to both of the obvious new-gen systems despite John Carmack's rather outspoken feelings
on the console wars. It should come as no surprise that there is no date for any of the releases, but we're sticking with Activision's guess
of "before Christmas."
