id Software Announces Doom 4

The landmark Doom franchise is getting a new game in the series according to an announcement made today by id Software. The company revealed that Doom 4 is in production and that it is looking to hire talent to work on the game. It’s unusual to basically reveal the existence of a game through basically a help-wanted ad; normally publishers like to trumpet the announcement.

Judging by the announcement, id is going to work on Doom 4 itself, which means that the company will develop two major titles simultaneously, something that it has never really done before in its long existence. Work is currently underway on Rage, which is a new franchise for id that blends vehicular combat with first-person action in a sci-fi setting.

It will be interesting to see where id goes with Doom 4. The previous game in the series, Doom 3, was released over four years ago and was basically a re-imagining of the original Doom, considered to be one of the most influential games of all time. Doom 3 was later released in an Xbox version. It’s unknown what platforms Doom 4 will appear on, but considering that id is developing Rage for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, it’s probable that Doom 4 will appear on those platforms as well.

Details remain scarce, but we’ll update you as they develop.
