Supposed Doom 4 concept art appears online

Bethesda confirms it isn't cancelled

Artwork supposedly from id Software's first-person shooter sequel Doom 4 has shown up online, along with claims that the project has been shelved.


The screens were originally posted on 4Chan by an anonymous user with the message "DOOM4 Canceled, more at 11."

In a statement to Joystiq, id Software's parent company and publisher Bethesda has provided assurances that the game hasn't been cancelled.

"DOOM 4 isn't cancelled," said VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines. "When we're ready to talk about it and show it off, we'll let everyone know."

The sequel was first confirmed in May 2008, but very little has been seen of it since. Last year it was claimed Doom 4 had been 'indefinitely postponed' due to issues surrounding Rage reviews.
