What game will id pursue next? A lot of people are hoping that the word "Doom" will have something to do with id's next project, but no one knows for sure. First up is a quote from id Software's Graeme Devine from DiabloII.com where he discusses inspiration for id's next game.
My interest is to make a game where the 3-4 hours, the running around screaming, and the sheer excitement of not knowing what’s down the next stairway carry on for longer than the experience of Diablo. A DM can do a lot to make this happen and I think we can introduce those into the game and stop players from getting so powerful so quickly and affect their view and abilities in other ways than sheer damage and armor protection.
Also, in an interview earlier today about Daikatana, John Romero was posed the following question:
[AskCheckOut] CO-Corey371 says: Speaking of doom, Mr. Romero, I am wondering and in my opinion ID software will not make another DOOM, would you or do you not have the license to do another DOOM?
[Daikatana] John_Romero: I think that ID is going to do another Doom,
[Daikatana] and it owns all the copyrights for Doom.
[Daikatana] I don't own any rights to anything I worked on at Id.
