id's Rage engine may skip E3

Quake dev is unsure whether it's attending the event in July

id Software may end up skipping this year's E3, according to CEO Todd Hollenshead.

"Actually, we haven't determined in what capacity we'll be attending E3 (if any)", Hollenshead has told Joystiq.

He was responding to rumours that have been circulating regarding id's plans to attend E3. Some have said it wouldn't be doing so, while others said the developer would.

Should id decide to pass on E3 2008, it'll be joining Activison and Vivendi which have been reported as skipping the event in order to hold its own separate event. Though if you hold it over the road from E3 that doesn't count in our book.

Although the 2008 E3 Media & Business Summit is returning to the LA Convention Center, there'll be no giant gaming displays and ear-splitting music. the event will run from July 15 to 17.
