id's Tim Willits hints at imminent Doom 4 reveal

Are id Software finally gearing up to reveal Doom 4? With Xbox 360, PS3 and PC reboots of previous Doom games heading our way, the company’s Tim Willits has dropped a not-so-subtle hint that they might be leading up to something. (Doom 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

OT- I would prefer the next Doom game for next gen consoles. That way, it would be sure to wow us without being shackled to ageing console hardware.

Doesn't matter to me what console it ends up on because it'll play best on pc.
Septic  +   734d ago
Yeah but that's thing MD- developing for current consoles might hinder the development for PC, in that, because of the requirement for Doom 4 to be compatible on current gen consoles, the PC version might not be as amazing as it would be if id software had more freedom with extra power afforded to it by next-gen consoles.

Obviously the logical thing to do would be to develop for PC first, like DICE did with BF3. Still, developers can't go 'all out' with the PC version (like Crytek did with the first Crysis) if they constantly have the worry of porting to consoles at the back of their minds.

Either way, gameplay is the most important thing here as well as the story.

haha very funny, anyway, valid point but i'm good as long as the PC version is done with justice.

don't mess up this one id, do so and you're Doomed untill Doomsday.

pay attention to:
- gameplay
- atmosphere
- story

This is sweet. I don't care what generation it's released on the whole concept means squat to pc gamers anyway. Doom 4 uses the rage engine at 30fps! That's just the boost needed to turn id tech 5 into the powerhouse it ought to have been from the start.

Uhm... as a PC gamer I do care what gen the game is released on, because the newer the consoles are, the better the game will look, especially on PC.

But that said, I don't care if Doom4 is this gen, I just want to play it! I am very anxious to see Doom in a uniquely textured world >:D

A hint of a possible reveal is news? Sure I will be excited when they do reveal it but until then why even mention it?

I love how he really didn't even say they were going to reveal anything, but merely re-release old doom games(which we already knew). Doom 4 will be revealed when it's revealed... just have patience

id Software have promised a trailer for QuakeCon for the past three years and each year retract that promise on the shows opening promising it for the next. Hopefully, we'll actually be getting a reveal this year...

Lol yeah. Last year they had Rage as an excuse, this year they have nothing.
