Doom 4 Being Revamped for Next-Gen Consoles, Rage 2 Shelved

Bethesda has revealed that Doom 4 is being revamped for next-gen consoles after it was decided that the quality of the game wasn’t high enough.

“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’s marketing boss Pete Hines told Eurogamer.

“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.”

On a sadder note, Bethesda also revealed that work on Rage 2 has ceased and DLC plans for the original have been “downsized.” All staff have been moved over to Doom 4.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
