Anybody know where I can get any licensing information on this engine? Is it even open for others to develop with anymore?

Yeah so um,, the Indie game Overdose uses ID Tech 2, and it looks FAR better than all of the Call of Duty games.

It uses a heavily modified version of Id Tech 2, even they say that it isn't Id Tech 2 anymore, they used that engine as a base to build a completely new one. But, I agree with you (and thats why I gave you a +) on the better looking thing.

Shadowmapping, phong, dynamic lights and shadows, impressive animations, and physiscs all rolled into an engine that's about as technically demanding as Left 4 Dead. It's a nice little engine. I think all of the hate for this engine just is sprouted from the hate for Call of Duty.
