It’s that time of the decade again, when id rolls in and starts making announcements and advancements here and there. The video game veteran developer and virtually the founder of the FPS genre, id has announced that they are beginning work on Doom 4!
Currently they haven’t divulged any details other than it will continue the Doom Universe and the battle vs. evil, blah blah blah. But more importantly, id is hiring! id has announced that they are looking for talented individuals to join their uber-team to save the world from crappy video games! Hit the jump for some more stuff on this.
id, unabashedly boasting their legendary status and contribution to the FPS world, direct you to their careers page. As you can see, there are a lot of openings out there, and on top of that, a developer like id will be looking for quality besides, of course, talent.
As for the game itself, we can probably expect it to be a continuation of Doom 3’s old-school-FPS-ish action. We’d also expect it to run on id Tech 5, because we can’t imagine it running on anything else. This also makes it the second game under development at id besides Rage.
Which also leads to the question of whether it will become another system benchmarking tool and a strong reason to upgrade your medieval computer, like Doom 3. 😉
