Rumors of Doom 4 have been around for a couple years now, but Bethesda and Id Software never actually came out and debuted it to the public. In a statement sent to Kotaku today by Pete Hines, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at Bethesda, he revealed that Doom 4 is in the works:
An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that Id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect. As a result, Id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we’re ready to talk about the Doom 4 Id is making, we will let folks know.
Systems for Doom 4 have yet to be determined, but if a Kotaku source is to be believed, it will arrive on next generation consoles.
When do you think we’ll see our first glimpse of Doom 4? Let us know in the comments below.
