Does anyone know when the source code for Doom 3 is to be released? I've heard a lot of things but nothing conclusive.


Edit any info is appreciated

Unless there's someone from Id on the site any answer is going to be at best a guess. – ChrisF Jul 29 '10 at 14:36

Quote from id's SDK website:

The Code is where all the real fun starts to happen. The Doom 3 SDK comes with pretty much half the source code for the game.

So the full source code hasn't been released yet, but some of it has.

Doom 3 Downloads

Not sure if that's just modding stuff, or extensions, but it does say SDK 3 'Contains the game source code, expansion source code (Resurrection of Evil), maya importer source, vehicle demo, and sample Maya files'.

If that just means far enough to mod it, I do not know.
