No DOOM 3 This Year

Though id Software basically invented the idea of using "when it's done" as a release date, and thus did not specify a release date when DOOM 3 was announced (story), many have been assuming that the game would be available for this year's holiday season (and jcal points out the DOOM 3 E3 billboard did clearly promise this year). Now a report on HomeLAN Fed cites Activision's 2003 release calendar and quarterly financial conference call to gain a bit more clarity on when to expect the highly anticipated shooter sequel. Activision admits that this matter is entirely in id's hands, but that they are not expecting the game this year, and have it "penciled" on their calendars for fiscal Q4 (Jan-March) 2004. Further actual release date delays were gleaned from the proceedings as well, including word that True Crime: Streets of LA is now due in late fall 2003 and that Rome: Total War, console Call of Duty, Quake IV, and Trinity are now all due in Fiscal 2005 (which begins April 2004).

lol DrEvil am I an idiot just because you're a clueless lil teenie prick who only listens to what greedy game companies tell ya?

How do you "optimize" for the most popular desktop cpu's or motherboards eh genius? There is no way, unless you have different architecture, but todays hardware does not differ, all cpu's are x86 all graphics cards work under directx/open gl.

You might want to make different path's for each video card/cpu/sound card but then again if developer/publisher's are all greedy they'll just cry and release crap in beta state.
I can undirstand when small devs have probs with funding, but this goes to big ass companies who really dont have problems with $$$ like EA.

All the crap they bable about "optimizations" is just amount of bugs they remove, just like drivers, they wont magically "optimize" them for all games, but few and most of the time quality suffers, because you cant have faster without sacrifising anything, unless there was a big and you kill it and make the process go faster.
