iD Software has no time for Wii U

iD Software has no time for Wii U

Time is money

Speaking in some kind of interview, iD Software's John Carmack talked about development on other platforms, including the Wii U, and unfortunate time constraints that makes things difficult:

"I wish that we could deploy this (Doom 3 BFG Edition) on a bunch of other code bases. I love platforms. I love looking for the fun things to do on different ones. I've been bringing up quietly at a bunch of the meetings, "You know, we could make a Vita version, a Wii U version, an iPhone/Android version." All of these would be reasonable platforms to take this technology. We do have a very busy development schedule and nothing else is really planned for that." - John Carmack"

I didn't like Doom 3 anyway. Or Quake 4 for that matter. When was the last time they did anything good? iD Software has had its heyday.
