Five Years And Nothing To Show: How Doom 4 Got Off Track

Doom 4 is in trouble, and has been for quite some time now, according to multiple sources. Though publisher Bethesda tells Kotaku they still plan to release the highly-anticipated first-person shooter, Doom 4 has gone through at least one major reboot over the past few years, and sources say even today, five years after development started, the game is not even close to complete. (Doom 4, PC)

Not painting a very pretty picture for the studio. Seems like the talent is fleeting a sinking ship i wonder if Carmack is gonna go down with it. If i was Bethesda i wouldnt worry about Doom 4, nearly as much as Elder scrolls online, that thing has swtor 2 written all over it.

Im surprised bugthesda even has standards.

The project was DOOMED from the outset.

I'm sorry I just had to say that lol.

I'd love to play a new Doom game, too bad there hasn't been a proper Doom sequel since 1995.

Doom 3 was Doom trying to be a horror game, I doubt Doom 4 will be any more similar to the originals when/if it comes out.

Except of course, the fact they said Doom4 would be action based and would have many enemies at once... and the fact that even the version they scrapped was full of demons crawling from everywhere.

I doubt Doom4 will be like Doom3.

Umm, who cares. I lost track of Id after I heard there was no more Rage 2. They should stick with new stuff and leave Doom alone.
Oh well, less money for me to spend.

Rage2 isn't cancelled. What they did is cancel work on it for the time being, the entire studio has been told to focus on just Doom4.

Doom 4 will be good if it's more like 1-2, plus last ID said was that they were moving the Rage team over to help finish Doom 4? that was like half a year ago..

doom 4 in 2016!!!
Vynzent  +   463d ago
Yeah, seems like that might be the case. Really sad considering we've been waiting for Doom4 since before Rage released :/
