Doom 4 announced!

Today, id Software announced they are working on the fourth entry in their highly successful Doom franchise as well as expanding its team of developers to work on the sequel to Doom 3.

"Doom is part of the id Software DNA and demands the greatest talent and brightest minds in the industry to bring the next installment of our flagship franchise to Earth," said id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead.

"It’s critical for id Software to have the best creative minds in-house to develop games that meet the standards synonymous with our titles."

No further details were revealed but the company will most likely utilize its new id Tech Engine 5 to produce the game. id Software’s lead artist Kevin Cloud had the following to say:

"You don’t even have to worry about how it’s going to look on PS3 or 360. Right now we’ve got it running cross-platform running 60 hertz, and it looks really good. In terms of what artists are available to achieve–it’s something you have to see for yourself. I can say this, but you still won’t get it until you see it."

At first, you may be inclined to call it shenanigans but seeing as how ShackNews reported the story, I’d say this is quite real.
