id’s Rage probably lacks dedicated servers


id Software’s John Carmack has said that the upcoming Rage will probably lack a dedicated server option, although the decision is not yet final. The first-person shooter and racing game is still undated, though a 2010 release seems likely (it was announced in 2007).

When id Software, creators of seminal PC shooters, decide that dedicated servers are a thing of the past, it seems as though the industry may continue to move in that direction. Modern Warfare 2 notoriously lacks the option, which Carmack has claimed to be a relief, as id “won’t have to be a pioneer on that”.
