Doom 4 Has Been In Development For Over A Year Already
If you never had the opportunity, you might want to find Doom III if you're a die-hard FPS fan. It was a fun, atmospheric, freaky experience that was well worth the price of admission.
Those who have played it are likely looking forward to the next installment, and although we haven't heard much in the way of details, it seems id Software has been working on it for the past year. According to European gaming site GameGuru, we learn Doom 4 has been in development since August of 2008, as evidenced by Lead Programmer Michael Dickheiser's work experience. You can see it there at the bottom of the listing; it's where he says he has been involved in the creation and production of the fourth Doom installment, which he wants to call the "best FPS game ever made." Of course, designers are always making these bold statements - and there's always a tendency to exaggerate on a resume, right? - but it's good to know they're diligently working away on the game. If they're this far along, we expect to see some information before the year is out, and it'll be interesting to see how id Software has kept up-to-date, what with the likes of Killzone 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 making their marks in 2009.
Really, I very much enjoyed Doom III, even if the memory is a little vague right now. I just remember the coolness of the flashlight and the fearful intensity of the some of the encounters.
