Bethesda Calls DOOM 4 Rumor "Bollocks"

An unconfirmed rumor on Kotaku from a "source claiming to be close to the publishers of the recently-launched Rage," says the launch of id Software's DOOM 4 is indefinitely postponed due to issues with the RAGE launch. This includes a quote from Bethesda's Pete Hines saying they "don't comment on unannounced games," but as noted on VG247, he proceeds to do just that, as he tweets that this is "complete bollocks," adding: "Re: DOOM 4 rumor, games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed indefinitely or otherwise."

What is worrisome to me about the idea of DOOM 4 being the next id game after RAGE is that it would probably use the RAGE engine (Tech 5?). Which from what I can tell, is great at rendering outdoor environments but not so much indoor environments. Unless they change the DOOM theme significantly with 4, that doesn't bode well considering DOOM games take place almost exclusively indoors.

Why not? All they have to do is not skimp on the texture resolution, and if the game really does take place indoors, they should have more overhead to be able to do that.

Except, of course, Johnny Carmack has admitted that it's "Consoles Fo Life, Yo!" and neither the 360 nor the PS3 has the capability to do decent textures in tech 5.

So the PC version will get the blurry, low-res shit that the consoles get, whether Carmack adds another dithering pass to the engine or not.
