Doom 4 in the works?

Bethesda has confirmed that a new version of Doom 4 is in development after an earlier version of the game failed to live up to quality standards

 

id Software is apparently hard at work producing a new version of Doom 4, according to Bethesda. A report on gaming website Kotaku has revealed that this iteration is a reboot of an earlier version of Doom 4, which id Software was working on in 2011.

In a statement to Kotaku, Bethesda's Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations, Peter Hines, confirmed the game's development but refused to go into any great detail about what players could expect from it.

"An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesday intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect," said Hines. "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 agme and this franchise."

"When we're ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know."

Kotaku goes on to cite sources who claim the development is "not going well" and who describe id Software as a studio that has been plagued by mismanagement and lack of communication - both of which have reportedly frustrated staff internally and id's parent company, ZeniMax. They also say that ZeniMax cancelled Rage 2 after the first game in the planned series sold poorly.
