It’s no secret that id Software is working on Doom 4, and now that they’ve got Rage out of the way and in the market, they’re focusing all their time and resources on Doom 4.

John Carmack, in an interview with Merlininkazani, talked a little about Doom 4 and what we can expect from its different versions.

Carmack says id could probably put more content  on the PS3 version of Doom 4 than the PC and Xbox 360 versions, basically because of the Blu-Ray’s space capacity.

“The videos are just using the normal game data,” he said, when asked if the new videos of Rage were made using the Super Texture Pack he recently talked about and if the same will be used for Doom 4,” he said.

“There is a decent chance we will fill the PS3 Blu-Ray with more data than we ship on DVDs for Doom 4, but we will have to see how much trouble it is maintaining two complete builds of the data.”

He also mentions an unique streaming tech for the PC that could provide more detail, but he is not sure whether he wants to take risks with it. It’s logical that it will take a lot more server and bandwidth requirements and id is not sure whether they can commit to it.

“I would love to let the PC stream extra detail over the net when needed, but that would take a significant server and bandwidth commitment that I’m not sure we can make.”

We don’t have any specific release date for Doom 4, but it should be out within the next couple of years, considering that it’s been in development for a long time now.

Sure you can. But there are only like 3 games available and none of them are made by a decent developer.

As much as I love id software. Doom 4 will be out in next 2 years ish.
Of which I will be playing 720. So unless doom 4 is changed and released on Xbox 720 I'll be playing the 360 version on a 720. Hardly impressive id that doom 4 will look old when it arrives because we will have 720 software our by then.

Id rage was great but your late to the party this gen. Move doom 4 to development on 720 when you have dev kit in march.

In fact that is exactly what they will do. Doom 4 will move development to Nexgen Xbox. Watch this space. Especially if they are right now saying it might be out in 2014.

Woot, which games?



1: ID is full of crap and screwing over PC gamers then.
2: More data doesn't necesarrily make a game better.
3: Never been a fan of Doom, so unless they turn it into a mega awesome game, and release for WiiU or 720, I probably won't get it anyway.

You've gotten old and slow Carmack, time to step up to the plate again.
