Doom Reboot Public Reveal isn’t Happening Until 2015, Bethesda Softworks
Doom 4 or simply referred to as Doom reboot pulled off a successful gameplay reveal at QuakeCon 2014; leaving the show’s attendees awe-struck.
However, the 20 minutes long gameplay demo was showed off behind the closed curtains of QuakeCon 2014. Bethesda Softworks and ID Software restricted any kind of camera equipment into the demonstration hall in order to prevent any leaks.
Although the attendees, primarily journalists managed to extract out important bits of information on the game, it’s never enough for a game of this calibre. Well, it turns out that the fans need to take the word of the journalists until 2015.
While speaking to PC Gamer, Bethesda Softworks Vice President of Marketing and PR Pete Hines explained as to why the publisher decided to go against the decision of a public reveal.
He stated that Bethesda Softwork and ID Software worked hand in hand in making most of the decision about the gameplay demo. When talked about a public reveal, ID Software stated that the game wasn’t up to the point where it could be formally revealed to everyone:
I try really, really hard for this to be a dev first, dev-lead thing. We’re working with [id Software] to say, ‘How does this work? What do we want to show?’ And they’re like, ‘Look, we don’t want a stream to go up for a game that isn’t at the point where we would formally show it to the world, and now that thing is getting picked apart, and digested, and gone through frame-by-frame and getting nitpicked to death, when normally we wouldn’t be showing this to anybody at all.’
He continued by stating that fans should expect a public reveal sometime in 2015.
“Next year is normally when I think we would’ve started,” he also talked about the possible alteration of the decision, but then thought against it by stating that he doesn’t “think there’s any way that happens.”
Nonetheless, those who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order will get access to Doom reboot beta once its launches.
