Today, May the 3rd, is Linguica's birthday. As the man himself would say, nothing really news worthy. But it seems the guys at id decided to gave our beloved webmaster a present... or is it pure coincidence? Anyway, just a week after their website redesign, id software finally announces the third opus of DOOM, that is the official way.
Let's have a look at the information that can be found in the official press release:

We're given the trademarked title of the game: "DOOM III". So the temporary name becomes definitive.
Activision will be responsible for the distribution, which is really not surprising since the two companies always had good and successful relationships by the past.
Confirmation is made that DOOM III will be featured at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

Other than that, the announcement is filled with corporate reminders about id software and Activision. Of course, this may seem a little short, but the fact the game has been officially launched could mean more publicity, more goodies and, why not, a release date not so far away.

"DOOM III will change what people expect to see and experience in a PC game," Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software said. "We couldn't be more psyched about DOOM III, and are thrilled to debut the title at E3 with Activision. Get ready to be terrified."

Happy birthday, Ling.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

Yeah, just a pity I don't know how to get to see a bigger version (if that's even possible at all).

yeah it's pretty sexy, the red in the logo could use a little smoothing around the edges from what I remember seeing a few hours ago.

I really don't care how long they take, as long as it's good.

To be honest, I think they were working on the game before Carmack said anything in his .plan about it... think about it, he takes forever to update his damn .plan. It could have been days or weeks before he decided to let people know. Look at how long it took them just to announce the game.

Carmack started working on the engine as soon as Quake 3 came out (Nov 1999 if I recall correctly). Meanwhile the rest of the guys were busy finishing the Q3TA expansion.
