id: 'User content not a huge consideration for us'

Don't expect to be making your own Doom levels on console...

Despite being one of the pioneers in the PC modding scene, id Software won't be embracing user-generated content on console any time soon.

Speaking toNext Gen, id developer Matt Hooper said he was a fan of user-generated content, but it wasn't where id was currently heading.

"For us personally, our biggest goal is - you can see it right now - we're pushing on the fidelity, visually," he said. "For us, we're doing things that we've never done before. That's already a lot of eggs in the basket. As far as user-generated content, it's not a huge consideration for us right now."

Matt Hooper is currently working on Rage, a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter and driving game. It's currently tapped for release next year.
