My Speculations of DOOM 4

Recommended Posts

New UAC Marine here, reporting on Doomworld for duty.

Greetings, Doomers. I've assumed the name of DeimosKnight. Glad the be in the best Doom site I've encountered.

To begin with, I'd like to start by discussing my speculations about DOOM 4, and a few of my expectations (I hope this doesn't sound dumb, fellow Marines).

I don't think that Doom 4 is a remake of Doom 2. As Tom Hollenshead said: “It's not a sequel to Doom 3, but it's not a reboot either. Doom 3 was sort of a reboot. It's a little bit different than those." . Interestingly, Hollenshead claims that Doom 4 is not a sequel to Doom 3, but he didn't say that it wasn't a sequel to Doom 1 or 2: only 3. If the game were a remake of Doom 2, that would count as sort of a reboot, and Hollenshead stated that it's not a reboot.

So, if it is not a sequel to Doom 3, nor a reboot of Doom 2, could it be, could it probably be, that Doom 4 is a direct sequel to Doom 2? If, and only if, this were the case, then that means that the story and art design from the first Dooms will be carried on to the Idtech 5 engine. That means that we might see the original Pinky Demon in Rage's game engine! This could also mean that the original weapon designs from Doom 1 and 2 will be featured in the game. But continuing on with my speculation, if Doom 4 will continue the story from the first two Dooms, what will the story be? I only hope that the assigned writer for the game does a better job than the writer for Doom 3 (For those who do like Doom 3's story, my apologies).

Also, the developers better do a good job on the boss fights for Doom 4, and they should be original, too. The most ultimate and unique boss of the series, in my opinion, is the Icon of Sin boss. Id should strive to design new bosses that are unique and impressive in their own right, just as the previous bosses were, and have a final boss which far exceeds the Icon boss.

Of course, until more information for Doom 4 is revealed, my speculations are meaningless. Does this speculation seem probable to you?
