Doom 4 development "indefinitely postponed"

Publish date:

Three years after it was first announced a dark cloud now hangs over id's long-awaited Doom 4.

Kotaku claims to have word from a source close to publisher Bethesda that parent company Zenimax has decided to "indefinitely postpone" development of the game.

The decision is 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 claims.
