The new Doom game was teased at E3 this year with the tagline "Reveal Quakecon 2014" What it didn't mention was that it was going to be revealed to the live attendees of Quakecon and the live attendees ONLY

According to a few sites like vg247 and polygon this is the case that is happening now. What a complete slap in the face, to release a teaser to the public and then only show off what was teased to an exclusive party.

I fully anticipate someone is going to record and leak the stuff anyways, but what a stupid move to not show off the game like was seemingly promised. Wolfenstein already had a horrible marketing campaign, this isn't looking much better. The only thing I can see helping me from foaming at the mouth is if the multiplayer beta comes out the same week, and the private footage is of the single player campaign. It'll burn a lot less.

Lack of confidence in their own game? This does not bode well for DOOM 4.

All the more reason to get Brad and Drew there.

STOP PLAYING WITH MY HEART, ID. STOP FUCKIN WITH ME.

That doesn't sound too good

This game is either never coming or is going to be an absolute trainwreck.

Can't wait!

Doesn't this just mean that the general public just get some shitty sneaky hand cam footage to base their first opinions of the game on? Sounds good to me

That's some good marketing right there.

Well that sucks and whatever leaked footage hits the internet will only show that game in a bad light with it's blurriness that I just don't see how this works for id showcasing a new game.

Oooh look it's the internet's favourite relentlessly trotted out idiom.

It will be leaked anyway so why not livestream the reveal and cut the bullshit?

@darkstalker: @siroptimusprime: @pr1mus: I'm lost. Didn't this game just get announced 'recently-ish'. I don't remember much talk about it after Doom 3 at all. So why is it 'never coming out'?

Its been 'announced' before Rage came out several years ago. I don't think there was ever a press release, but they said they were making a new Doom game numerous times

fucking Bethesda/Zenimax, we should congregate at their headquarters and shit all over their parking lot

I'm fairly confident that Doom 4 is going to be at best a Rage-level disappointment, but I'm still super curious to see what it actually is.

#24 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2621 posts) -

@everettescott: Doom 4 has been in development since like 2007 and they've completely restarted development multiple times. I think it's definitely coming out this time, but obviously people are wary due to its rocky past.

Yes this. It was first announced in 2008 and apparently restarted in 2011 without ever releasing any meaningful news about the project and since then most key people at iD are gone and the studio is barely a shadow of its former glory.

Terrible decision is they do not release something at the same time. Off screen footage will be recorded by someone there, and it will be up on the internet for everyone to judge. It will give the game some pretty poor press from the start if that recording is lackluster in any way.

Kinda curious what other Bethesda games would be shown there? Maybe fallout 4 ;)

As long as I can shoot a rocket launcher.

I agree with the general sentiment ... why not just show it to all in good light than rather a crappy & blurry at best phone shot video , that is beyond me

So, you're complaining about a video that was never guaranteed to you? I see no loss. It sucks that we won't get the video that early, but they have to get people to attend somehow.

Whether you think its right or not, it's silly to call them out for being unfair...

You have the worst logic in this situation

That's sweet. I like when companies reward their fans, even if it's only a few days/weeks before the rest of the world.
