RAGE 64-bit Release Confirmed; Mod Tools News Coming Soon

John Carmack has confirmed that a 64-bit executable for RAGE will be released, but didn’t offer a specific time frame. We knew this post-release feature was planned, but given all has been quiet on the Western Front, concerns arose that the project had been abandoned.

When asked if RAGE 64-bit was canceled, Carmack replied via Twitter:

This is the second piece of good news for RAGE fans this month. On the topic of Mod Tools, the official iD software Twitter account for RAGE stated a couple weeks ago:

Are you looking forward to 64-bit RAGE and Mod Tools, or is it too little, too late?

Still boggles my mind that games don’t come large-address aware right at launch……. but then again, I suppose it’s to be expected when they’re primarily making these games for consoles. As for the Tech 5 engine, I had high hopes for it, but I think the fact that they aimed so low hurt them really bad in Rage, forever giving Tech 5 a black eye. Bethesda already stated the engine would be used in-house only, but I think the prospects of licensing it after all the negative press was extremely slim anyway.
