While the source code to id Software's Doom 3 was already primed for release it was the lawyers that kept it from going forth on the Internet, but now the ambulance chasers are satisfied.

John Carmack twittered that it's finally in the hands of aspiring developers who want it. Apparently some of the code was rewritten because it made the legal suits nervous. Github has it.

QuakeCon 2011 held the news that the source code would be set free after Rage's release in October. It'll allow player mods to be stand alone games in their own right.
