    Phoronix: id Software Open-Sources ET, RTCW

    id Software has announced from their annual QuakeCon event that they have open-sourced their Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Return To Castle Wolfenstein games under the GNU GPL. id Software is known for open-sourcing their games and engines after some years of use and this day has finally come for these two very popular Wolfenstein titles...

    Is the source code of Doom 3 released? I thought it would be released shortly but these releases of code makes me question that I might simply missed Doom 3's source code's release...

    Pretty cool that id released rtcw and et, though, because I thought that these were not supposed to be flossed.

    I thought the Doom 3 sources were held up due to some problem with Creative having patented an algorithm that's used in the shadow volume generation code.

    I don't think id will release the Doom3 engine before Rage has been released. In any case big ups to id for continuing to release their stuff as Free Software!

    might I add, steam is selling all the ID and bethesda games (they have) on sale for 70usd for quakecon. Good time to pick up your ID goodness.

    I've seen a few random tweets from people claiming the release should be imminent, but nothing to back it up. I doubt it will come before Rage is released too.

    Great news! I really like iD's policy and commitment when it comes to open-sourcing their code
