Not a reboot either

id Software: Doom 4 Not a 'Re-Skinned Rage'
"Doom 3 was sort of a reboot. It's a little bit different than those, and if I told you why, I would get my ass kicked when I got back", so said id Software's design director Matt Hooper. But what of Doom 4?

"It's very much deep in development. But everything I've seen on it is classic Doom, so I don't really have worries that people aren't going to like it and start talking about it," he tells Eurogamer.

Apparently, the Doom 4 development team is "going in their own direction," Hooper added. "They're doing something Doom fans will be happy with."

This is a good thing because we, like Matt, "don't want to make a re-skinned Doom (with Rage) and then Doom 4 be a re-skinned Rage. That would be bad."

Hands-up all who agree!
