Public Doom Reveal Not Likely Until Next Year

Public Doom Reveal Not Likely Until Next Year

Footage of the new Doom game (simply called Doom) shown exclusively to QuakeCon attendees last weekend was shown in an effort to quell concerns about the development state of the game, and is unlikely to reach the public eye until next year. 

"I really wanted to put something out there that, in a strong way, said, ‘id is working on something that we think is really cool,’" Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing for Bethesda Softworks told PC Gamer. "And we wanted ... to show something to [id Software fans] that gives them the confidence that it is still a viable studio that’s doing really cool stuff, that is making a game you want to play, and is treating Doom with the care and respect that you want.

"And now we’re going to go away and go back to making the game, but to be able to counter other people talking about us and we’re sort of just sitting here staying silent, or operating from this negative space of like, ‘Oh, it got rebooted, oh it’s in trouble.’ All of that stuff just bothered the hell out of me."

Hines said that the game was not planned to be revealed until next year, but the QuakeCon preview was a compromise to make sure attendees weren't disappointed, and to allow Bethesda to go back to being quiet about Doom.
