Famed video game developer John Carmack has expressed his personal interest in bringing Doom 3 BFG edition to multiple platforms. Carmack admits that it is something he would love to be able to do, but says that the development team just hasn’t got the time.

“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.”



  1. Doom 4 is still in development, so why not uses that as a Wii U, Vita and Android/iOS game =3

    I mean I would love to see Doom 3 on a Nintendo console again (Last Doom game I ever played on a Nintendo console it was the 64 version)


  2. Haven’t played a single one of these games yet, but I would be interested. Would it be possible for the first Doom to be put on Wii U Virtual Console or something? Would be pretty cool, especially if they have it customizable like on PC.


  3. I still don’t know why they’re remaking it for PC, I still have Doom 3 and it’s expansion pack. It would make more sense if it was just a console only remake.


  4. Well, this has no problem as far as one sees – if they ever get around to making a version for the Wii U, it’d be interesting to see just how they made it work in accordance to the console.

    Of course, an original title would be nice, but sometimes you must take what is offered, and see if anything further develops once custom is established widely enough for the risks to be worth it.


    • *PC Breaks* oh dear, looks like you need to repair it again.. and again… and again and so on.

      PC has bigger problems than most consoles such as virus, easily hacked into, parts costing a fuck load of money. I could go on but your little tiny brain wouldn’t handle it.

      PC is good but when it comes to gaming on a budget, console gaming and portable gaming is the way to go.


  5. I think this will be an awesome experience on the Wii U or the PS Vita! You have one customer right here that would buy the Wii U or PS Vita just for that game.Make it official and I will do a segment on our website and tell all of our friends.
