Id Software, the developer of Doom 4, confirmed that the leaked images of the supposed to be Doom sequel are not from the game.
Id software said that the images circulated on the internet are not representative of the actual game.
The company’s design director Matthew Hopper tweeted his reaction regarding the images that are now available on many sites. Although he did not say that the images are fake, he stressed that none of the images describe what gamers will experience in the latest Doom sequel. “Those images have nothing to do with what you’re gonna see in Doom 4,” is what Hopper said in his latest tweet.
More than 170 images (or fake images) of Doom 4 are being circulated on the internet. The images are getting released regularly and have gathered a lot of interest from the fans of the original game. These images show some character models from the game. Id software has not confirmed if the images are fake.
Lately, we are hearing a lot of rumors about the Doom 4. No one can confirm if the rumors are true or false. We will have to wait and see. Another rumor alongside the leaked images is about the cancellation of the Doom 4 project. Many websites have announced that Doom 4 project has officially been called off. However, this rumor was quickly debunked by parent publisher Bethesda. They also said that they will be ready to inform the public about the game as soon as they are ready to talk about it.
The rumors about the cancellation of Doom 4 have been around for some time and this is not actually the first time that such rumors have surfaced on the internet. In his statement, Bethesda talked about last year’s rumors about the Doom 4 project being postponed by saying, “Games are done when they are done, and no title under development at id has been postponed–indefinitely or otherwise.” Bethesda’s comments are enough to silent the people who are talking about postponement or cancellation of this project.
It was May 2008 when news release stating that Doom 4’s production has begun, marked the first ever confirmation of the existence of the Doom 4. Three years after that, John Carmack, head of id Software confirmed in Electronic Entertainment Expo that Doom 4 will be developed with the Rage core team at the helm. Carmack also mentioned the release of a sequel to Rage after Doom 4’s launch. After that, we have been hearing rumors about the cancellation of this project.
We hope that the time taken for the development and release of the game is worth it. The gamers are waiting to see better game play and story line in Doom 4. Let’s see what Doom 4 will have to offer to the gamers who are waiting to see the final output. The rumors have already created a lot of interest in fans around the world.
