Rage 2 Canceled – Doom 4 Making a Comeback

By   /   3 years ago

It’s finally happening. Doom 4 has made continuous appearances on and off the radar through official and unofficial websites in various forms, and now after a very long time, ID Software has confirmed that a Doom 4 reboot is indeed on its way but that comes at a price of Rage 2, which has been canned.

It appears that Doom 4 remake was in the works, but it didn’t meet the standards that ID and Bethesda were looking for; therefore, the game will be going through a reboot and is being remade, which is good to hear as we finally have some official news to comfort the long waiting fans of the series.

Vice President of Marketing at Bethesda, Peter Hines, commented on the scenario as such:

An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect, said Hines.

As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we’re ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know.

It has been reported that the previous version of Doom 4 “borrowed” elements from modern shooters, so it was possible we could have gotten a version of Doom 4 where scripted events, regenerating health and infinite sprinting could be possible, which would completely ruin the type of game that Doom fans have come to know and love since the original released.

In other news, it appears that due to less than lackluster reception of the original game, ID and Bethesda have made the decision not to succeed Rage with a sequel. It seems that Rage 2 is (for now at least) off the table, and the studios are going full throttle with Doom 4!

For now, I am contented with Doom 4 and look forward to the game.
