Id Software and Avalanche Studios have already mapped out the content coming out for Rage 2 in the next few months, but that isn’t enough for id Software. According to the id Software boss, “As Soon As Possible” is what he said in regards to a sequel to Rage 2 in an interview with Hollywood Reporter. There is no info on this whether Avalanche will return as Rage 2 only came out this month. The game does use the Apex Engine its seems likely that AS will return.
I very much hope this isn’t Bethesda pressuring them, but there has been no information confirming this to be true. Tim Willits (id’s boss) is a man who loves his work, and that is easy to see in the following quote; “Yes, is the answer to that question. We’ve always loved this franchise because it’s such a fun setting. We can do what we want. We were once talking about riding on giant cockroaches. What other game can you have a conversation where that’s a legitimate conversation you can have?! It’s a crazy, fun, exciting franchise, and I hope we can make a third one as soon as possible.”
Rage 2 first.
So far it has had mixed reviews, none of them have been terrible though. Rage 3 will only happen if Rage 2 makes a profit or gains a cult following. In my experience, the game is well made, and I haven’t experienced any bugs, which for a 2019 AAA game is surprising. Gunplay and combat feel very satisfying and enjoyable. On the other hand, the OpenWorld side of the game feels more like a chore that needs to be done to earn more shoot outs.
All in all, very mixed feelings, but maybe once I put more time in, I will learn to love the open world. What do you think about Rage 3 being talked about already? Showing a good work ethic or jumping the gun? Let us know in the comments below
