Last week you told you of an insider who said that Doom 4 had been indefinitely postponed following the unexpectedly low critical acclaim of id’s long-in-development post-apocalyptic shooter Rage. According to said insider, the top brass at id Overlord Bethesda Softworks have developed “a serious lack of confidence in the project management at id,” resulting in the project being shelved.

id says otherwise.

“Complete bollocks,” says Bethesda’s Pete Hines.

“Re: Doom 4 rumour, games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed – indefinitely or otherwise.”

There you have it. Doom 4’s not been postponed, or cancelled; it’ll just be out when it’s ready – which knowing id could be a long, long time from now. which should give you ample time to stockpile adult nappies and sleeping tablets.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
