Rage 3 Already Being Planned After Rage 2 Launch
Rage 2 has finally made it to release, letting players experience the crazed and over-the-top open world depicted in the game’s colorful marketing. Though critical reviews aren’t 100% stacked in its favor, it seems Avalanche Studios and id Software’s sequel shooter was more-or-less successful in depicting their brazen, in-game wasteland. As Rage 2 only just released a few days ago it’s way too early to judge the game’s success, but that apparently hasn’t stopped plans for a possible Rage 3.
Speaking recently with The Hollywood Reporter, id Software studio director Tim Willits spoke about how Rage 2 came together and, more importantly, what the future of the franchise could look like. Willits expressed hope towards a potential Rage 3, citing the “exciting” possibilities that could be explored in a future installment. Specifically, he cites the idea of giant rideable cockroaches that ended up being cut from Rage 2.
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.”
As Rage 2 has only just recently released, it’s currently unknown whether id Software’s dream of mountable mutant bugs might ever be a reality. While there’s many that would find Rage 3 to be full of possibility, there’s also plenty that are decidedly mixed on the Rage franchise’s future. However, with the game’s release still early days and a slate of post-launch content on the way, there may be room to warrant the arrival of another Rage adventure sometime down the line.
Rage 2 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One.
