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

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.
