Doom 4 on its way

FPS franchise returns after four-year hiatus

Nearly four years after the release of Doom 3, id Software has confirmed development of the fourth game in the series.

The announcement was more of a hiring call for developers than a notice of game details, but it was confirmation nonetheless of the game's looming release.

It's unclear when the shooter will arrive and for which platforms, but being that Doom 3 released on Xbox in 2005, and given the waning sales of PC games, a simultaneous launch of Doom 4 on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 would not be unlikely.

In any case, "the ultimate battle against evil continues," said the pioneer of first-person shooters, id Software.
