"Rage" is a first-person shooter and driving video game in development by id Software. It will use the company's new id Tech 5 engine.

Reports indicate that id is developing "Rage" with a T-for-Teen rating in mind, and that the Xbox 360, PC, and Mac versions will ship on 2 discs, while the PS3 version will ship on one Blu-ray Disc.

John Carmack told Slashdot in 2007 that there is a Linux port under development, even if it's not yet ready for testing. [ [http://games.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=302231&cid=20671657 Is id Abandoning Linux?] from Slashdot] However, as with earlier games from the company, the Linux version will be offered as a separate download which requires the Windows disk's maps and game data to run.

On July 14, 2008, id announced its decision to partner with Electronic Arts for publication of "Rage". [ [http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/07/ea-id-team-to-p.html EA, id Join Forces for "Rage"] from Wired News] Regarding the status of the Linux port after this announcement, John Carmack said "It isn't a launch platform for us, but an executable may still show up."
