Forums - Gaming Discussion - Kotaku Rumor: Doom 4's Development Indefinitely Postponed Following Poor Rage Launch

Rage did not do that bad, but I am sure they hoped for more. Just too many games at once people! I think Christmas may help out a lot though. Doom is a big franchise, especially if they do it right, so we should not worry too much about it. AFter all even Duke Nukem eventually came out again! ;)

dead island or Rage? i know which one was the bigger disappointment considering who developed the ip, but which one had the most problems?



one thing I have noticed form Bethesda is that all the games other than games from Bethesda Game studios have been failures, lucky the ones from Bethesda have been massive success or else we would not have no skyrim. Brink, Hunted Demon Forge all flopped, and Rage isn't blowing away sales and will struggle come BF3 and MW3 release. Hopefully Bethesda tradition of releasing poor non Bethesda GS titles stopped on Prey 2 as that game looks Awesome.



Of Course That's Just My Opinion, I Could Be Wrong

were you ever a PC gamer? its not about the sells. the game sold as good as most would think is good for a new ip. its over 1m if not 3m ww already? these guies invented the FPS. theres no excuse for the level of problems Rage had at launch! for id fans this was simlpy unexceptable.

bugs, glitches, and frame rate issues are just a few of the problems i've heard this game having, and for id its simply unexceptable 



Bethesda has already dismissed this rumor via twitter: "Re: DOOM 4 rumor, games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed – indefinitely or otherwise."

This from the VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda.

I have, and am really enjoying Rage, and so I would not consider it a failure. I have no idea what ID/Bethesda's expectations for it's sales were, though I'm sure EVERY company would like more than what they got.

wow they have had a bad yr or so! i hope it gets better cause for id this was just disappointing. i hope Prey comes together to or we're going to have problems on our hands, and so will Bethesda.

In grade school I played PC and Apple 2 games all the time.

Funny, Doom 3 was a massively overhyped disappointment as well. Should Id Software just start sticking to engines?



the game is'nt doing that bad. There's alot of games with worse sales out there.
