According to ID Executive Producer Marty Stratton, DOOM 4 was scrapped because "it was more 'DOOM' in name than really anything."
Because they wanted to punish John Carmack.
From reports apparently Doom 4 was shaping up to be COD but set in the DOOM universe, honestly really glad that didn’t happen.
Pretty much they wanted to make it to meet what was selling at the time and in doing so it lost the soul of what makes doom doom.
Even Doom 3 did that, despite being a solid game all the same. Not mind blowing, in my opinion, but a solid title.
Because it was Call of Duty with generic demons on Earth. Looked worse than the 2009 Wolfenstein. They made the right call.
