Having announced at E3 its plans to release Wolfenstein RPG for mobile phones, id Software is at it again.

Tonight, at the company's QuakeCon show in Dallas, they announced plans to also bring Doom II RPG to mobile.

Sadly, there's no more specific details about a release date or game content, but it seems safe to assume that the game will follow the pattern laid down by Doom RPG back in 2005.

In other words, it'll take Doom II and turn it into a turn-based RPG. Judging by id's work with the previous game, as well as the two Orcs & Elves mobile games, it should be great fun.

It'll be interesting to see if EA Mobile is the publisher for the new game - they're already confirmed as publishing Wolfenstein RPG.

Of course, diehard fans will speculate that the next logical step would be Quake RPG for mobile phones too.

That said, we'd like to see what new ideas John Carmack and co come up with for mobile, alongside RPGising their big hits.
