id's Next Game

'Doom' creator Id soon to start on new game on Reuters (thanks Gaming Horizon and Tiscali Games) has scant details on id's next project after DOOM 3, which will unsurprisingly begin development soon after DOOM 3's completion. The more newsworthy bit is the revelation that the game will not be another sequel or remake:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Video game developer id Software, famed creators of games like "Doom" and "Quake", will likely start work on its new project almost immediately after completing four years of work on "Doom 3", its chief executive says.

In an interview with Reuters on the sidelines of the video game industry trade show E3 here, Todd Hollenshead said that the game in question was new intellectual property, and was not a "Doom", "Quake" or "Wolfenstein" game.

He offered few details on the style or content of the game, other than to say the id team would start serious work on it in short order, possibly a matter of days, after moving on from the PC and later Xbox releases of the new "Doom2".

Since when does 2003 have the same meaning as "when its done",
sure Activision may have put up that banner, or someone from Activision anyway, but that person was obviously uninformed and didnt have any contact WHATSOEVER with Id software.
As far as I can remember Id have very rarely mentioned any fixed release dates. "Maybe summer 2004" is probably as good as you'll get from them till the game goes gold.
Activision can pressure all it wants, but ultimately Id holds all the reins cos they know if Activision wants to publish this game, they will wait as long as it takes for it.
