id Will Release Doom 3 Source Code This Year

John Carmack has revealed in his QuakeCon keynote address that id will be releasing the source code from Doom 3 this calendar year. It won’t be just yet, though, because they’re focused on getting Rage out the door right now, but once they do that, they’ll start working on getting the Doom 3 source code out there.
