id Software is already working on the next generation of id Tech Engine, will be more parallel than id Tech 6

id Software’s CTO, Robert Duffy, has revealed that the team is already working on the next generation of its id Tech Engine. Although Duffy did not reveal much, he did say that this new version of id Tech will be more parallel than id Tech 6.

As Robert Duffy claimed:

“We’re working on the next-generation of id Tech right now, and we’re definitely going to optimize, you know, fully for Ryzen. The new engine tech that we’re working on is far more parallel than id Tech 6 was. We plan to really consume all the CPU that Ryzen can offer.”

Do note that Quake Champions will not be powered by this next-gen version of id Tech Engine. Quake Champions will be using the id Tech 6 Engine (correction) a hybrid engine made up of id tech and Saber, though id Software plans to adjust it so it can take advantage of both Ryzen and Vega.
