Carmack: “Whole team has shifted their focus towards DOOM 4”

While speaking at Quakecon yesterday, industry legend John Carmack was asked about the status of DOOM 4. To that Carmack replied that the game will be done when it’s done.

He also mentioned that previously his studio had been busy in mobile projects but now the whole team has shifted their focus towards DOOM 4.

I hope that we do get back to mobile in various ways in the future, but the real aim is blockbuster triple-A titles, and for id that means Doom 4.

The co-founder to ID games didn’t reveal much about the fourth installment in the historic DOOM franchise but the did talk about DOOM 3 BFG Edition. The BFG Edition is an enhanced re-release of the game and will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 19.

Here’s a new trailer focused on the Lost Missions that will be included as a bonus:
