Id discusses Doom’s reveal method
id Software revealed the next Doom yesterday to the press but won’t be showing it to the public for quite some time.
They say there was no perfect way to announce the game and don’t want to show it off prematurely.
“I really wanted to put something out there that, in a strong way, said, ‘id is working on something that we think is really cool,’” said Hines. “And we wanted … to show something to [id Software fans] that gives them the confidence that it is still a viable studio that’s doing really cool stuff, that is making a game you want to play, and is treating Doom with the care and respect that you want.
“And now we’re going to go away and go back to making the game, but to be able to counter other people talking about us and we’re sort of just sitting here staying silent, or operating from this negative space of like, ‘Oh, it got rebooted, oh it’s in trouble.’ All of that stuff just bothered the hell out of me.”
I guess I can understand their reasoning. Perhaps they were afraid of a leak happening before 2015.
The wait for more info will be hard but fans just have to use their imaginations and have faith in id for the time being.
