Earlier this morning Kotaku uploaded a report claiming that the publisher had cancelled Doom 4 in response to Rage's technical troubles and review scores.
I hope this is sooo wrong. Jeez - it's a brand new engine - developers will be queuing up to license the software for their own game surely? I loved the physics engine on it for "ammo impact" - thought it was great!
However, if the published cancels Doom 4 due to technical issues with the engine then ID should go to a new publisher. It's Doom FFS - how wrong can they go with it (and don't throw Duke Nuke 'em at me - I am aware that was shite).
Anyway - Doom 4 would easily sell just due to the name (e.g. MW series!!). ID have made a fun, engaging, simple, old school, pure FPS shooter with Rage and they should be applauded for it (let's not mention the lame racing though .
If it doesn't sell then it's more to do with it landing in the middle of such tough AAA titles - maybe they should have done a ME3 and released it in the new year!
