id's John Carmack answers questions at QuakeCon 2011

All ninety minutes of John Carmack's QuakeCon 2011 'question and answer" session have appeared online, giving those not lucky enough to attend an opportunity to see the legendary designer discuss the finer elements of game creation.

A wide range of topics were discussed, but few points were as well received as Carmack's announcement regarding dedicated server support. "We actually have marching orders that future games will have dedicated servers," Carmack told the delighted QuakeCon crowd.

For Rage, the company's upcoming game, dedicated servers are not included, because the team's focus is on its single-player experience. Carmack did note, however, that based on community support, adding dedicated servers to the game's multiplayer modes is "not off the table."
