Doom 4 development targeted for next-gen, report says

Doom 4 is in its own special Hell on Earth–development hell. Kotaku reports that the first new game in id Studio’s core franchise since Doom 3 in 2004 has been revised several times over five years of development, with little to show for it today.

Kotaku’s sources say the game is now targeted for next-generation consoles, with no known release date.

“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,” Bethesda said in a statement. “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.”
