Id Software has always been good about supporting the developer community by releasing the source code for its older games. Now as the release of id's latest title, Rage, approaches, the developer has promised that Doom 3 source code is coming.

Phoronix has this happy piece of news, which comes courtesy of id co-founder John Carmack's keynote at QuakeCon. According to Carmack, the Doom 3 source code will be made public this year, likely shortly following the October release of Rage.

Anyone excited to dig into the code behind this idTech 4 classic?
