Splash Damage Might Bring Old IP Classics To Life
Developer Splash Damage is currently hard at work on Brink, the promising shooter with a twist of perspective ala Mirror's Edge.
These guys have been around, typically lending a hand to shooters for the PC that have names like "Quake," "Wolfenstein," and "Doom." So when IncGamers asked Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood if they'd consider going back to some of those classic IPs, his reply was encouraging. Who doesn't miss the good ol' days when such titles reigned supreme on store shelves? Said Wedgwood:
"While we're not thinking about what we're going to do next as we're focused entirely on Brink... the point, of course, is that Zenimax bought id Software, so those intellectual properties - Enemy Territory, Wolfenstein, Quake, Doom, and stuff - they're within that Bethesda family now. So we certainly wouldn't shy away from the idea of working on any of those things because we love doing it, but right now our sole focus is on Brink."
Well, if they do decide to tackle any such project in the future after Brink, we would have to ask that it actually gets completed. We're just not sure if we can handle another Duke Nukem fiasco... While semi-entertaining, it just got annoying and sort of sad after so many years of, "no, really, it's coming!" So we say, go ahead and finish Brink; than talk to Bethesda about maybe doing something with a new Quake or Doom. Just make sure it's a serious talk.
