Complete bollocks.” That is Bethesda's response to rumours of a postponement of development on id's Doom 4.
This morning Kotaku claimed to have word from a source close to publisher Bethesda that parent company Zenimax had decided to "indefinitely postpone" development of the game.
The decision was said to stem from concerns at both Zenimax and Bethesda about the mixed reviews of recent release Rage, as well as the technical problems that muddied the launch.
These factors have culminated in "a serious lack of confidence in the project management at id", the site claimed.
But speaking on Twitter, Bethesda's VP or PR and marketing Pete Hines referred to the rumours as complete bollocks”, seemingly nipping that rumour in the bud.
