Carmack: Ads nog enough to support Quake Live

Posted on Wednesday, August 19 2009 @ 04:20:41 CEST by

John Carmack said during his Quakecon keynote that in-game advertising was not enough to support Quake Live, the free web-based version of Quake III. To generate more revenue, id Software will introduce Quake Live subscriptions that will enable players to configure and run their own private servers.
"The in-game advertising stuff has not been big business," he admitted. "That's not going to be able to carry the project."

Quake Live subscriptions will allow players to configure and run their own private servers for the shooter. Carmack also noted that the game will never go entirely pay-to-play.

"Quake Live is gonna be Quake Live for the foreseeable future," he said. "It's only just now that we're going to be able to put it to the test."
