A rumor has it that Wolfenstein: New Colossus is being made using id Tech 6.

Haven't watched the video yet, but would make sense.  Doom was awesome in it.

I'd guess they took their New Order code base and updated it.

Likely the same for Evil Within 2?

They used id Tech 5 for TNO. New Colossus uses id Tech 6. So it was most likely full rewrite.

From the demo seems like exact same engine as TNO.  Even though I'm now @ the min CPU (AMD FX 8350) & well below the min GPU (AMD HD 7850) it runs the same on the same settings.

TNO was built with id Tech 5, NC with id Tech 6. Check Wikipedia ;)

Wikipedia is (not so?) strangely absent with any references to the engine that Wolf: TNO & NC were made with, just saying they're make with 5 & 6 respectively (no article, etc. references linked).

I thought TNO was the same engine as Doom, but didn't realize it came out two years earlier.  So that's my mistake.  :)

However, the fact that Doom and NC demo run as good as TNO (I'd say it's safe to assume TNO has many updates vs Rage) makes me think the differences between the engine are either a) not that much or b) so much so that with increased content it runs better/same on the same hardware as the previous two games.

I want to point out that NC demo has really short loading sequences on my machine too.  Especially compared to a Source engine game.  Those still take minutes to load vs Doom/TNO/NC's 30 seconds or less.

Also, if if the wikipedia article is correct that all assets had to be recreated (says "complete overhaul" which isn't very descriptive) for id tech 6, Machinegames either had NC stuff being worked on alongside TNO (released only 3 years ago) or things got so streamlines they created a whole new game with a whole new engine in under 3 years.  Either way,  wow.
