Doom 4 Reveal Aims to Stop Negative id Chatter
Filed under: DOOM 4


Okay, so, id Software hasn't talked about Doom for years (seems like decades to me) and now they are trying to pump life back into it by throwing a few crumbs on the table. Yes, I am slightly pissed off due to the gay teaser and the whole QuakeCon-attendees-only reveal. However, id has explained that this reveal is part of the company's effort to restore the public's faith in the franchise.

"We're working with them to say, 'How does this work? What do we want to show?'" Bethesda's Pete Hines said. "And they're like, 'Look, we don't want a stream to go up for a game that isn't at the point where we would formally show it to the world, and now that thing is getting picked apart, and digested, and gone through frame-by-frame and getting nitpicked to death, when normally we wouldn't be showing this to anybody at all.'"

So, if I understand this correctly, they decide to restore Doom's reputation in the eyes of the public by not showing anything to the public?

You can also add to this story the simple fact that id Software is unlikely to showcase Doom 4 anytime soon. In fact, probably not before 2015.

Well they did scrap all the plans in 2011 and started over... They might do it again after reactions at QuakeCon...

Also, showing something in 2015 doesn't mean it will be released then... so nope... not any time soon...

I kinda like it how they did it. Let other games go the YouTube route.

I do think they owe Brutal Doom a big thank you, since it seems that's how the game is going to go. What about card games and buggy racing? Nope, blood and gore!

I think it's mainly sites like Gamespot and those fanboys that would literally pick apart a video with high expectations, theories that are all over the place, speculations on how terrible the game will be, and overall create a terrible environment for people who want to get into the series before the game is even out.

Not that it would help anyways considering the game is well known. I can't remember when Doom 3 was actually released, just that I spent an entire weekend plowing through the game with a couple hours of sleep in total back in 05.

Has it really been that long?
