was supposed ship with modding tools when it launched in October 2011. It didn't, but a tweet
from id Software founder John Carmack suggests he hasn't forgotten the promise he made to mod fans one year ago, nor the frustration of letting them down:

tools, but Real Soon Now. I hope. Sigh. I think we have made poor decisions on this all year."Doom 3 BFG Edition
launched on October 16 in the US, and now id is most likely focused on the development of Doom 4
. If id is still serious about pushing Doom 4
onto the Oculus Rift
, those mod tools better come out mighty soon, lest we never see them at all – when prioritizing development for either a crazy futuristic headset or modding tools for a year-old lukewarm game, the choice seems to jump right out at you.
