Doom 3: BFG Edition will be the first game to support the in-development headset, and now Carmack has assured VR fans that the sequel will follow suit.
"I'm excited for once Doom 3 ships, and gets out there, I'll put all this stuff into the Doom 4 platform, which will be nice to take our current top-of-the-line stuff and have that in virtual reality,"
he said at QuakeCon
"It's going to be a fully supported feature on there, because I think I could justify - based on the response that we got from our 8-year-old re-release title on here, when we finally do end up giving demos on Doom 4, we're gonna say, 'Okay, here's all this great stuff, run through all this stuff,' everybody has a great time, and then at the end you can play it in virtual reality, and that'll just put the stamp on everything. So I think I have good justification for my continued involvement in it,"
he went on.
Carmack has publicly and enthusiastically endorsed the device since E3 earlier this year, which probably did a lot to help it reach the impressive $1 million milestone on Kickstarter
in two days.
