id on DOOM 4 Images

While neither confirming nor denying the authenticity of the recent batch of screenshots purportedly from DOOM 4, id Software's Matthew Hooper took to Twitter to say that these are not representative of the game, saying: "Those images have nothing to do with what you're gonna see in Doom4. When we officially show things you'll see awesome." Thanks VG247.

I'm inclined to agree. Doesn't id still make engines for Open GL? While the entire rest of the industry switched to DirectX a decade or so ago?

As I recall, John posted about 2 years ago that RAGE would be the last OpenGL title, and further development was going to be centered on DirectX.

That said, I think your assessment is WAY OFF.

The primary reason for Carmack's use, endorsement, backing of, and sitting on the OGL Standards committee was to make porting the rendering of engines easier across different platforms. Sure, DX11 is nice, but the PS3 and Wii don't support it, so using an Open Source standard makes sense if you want to cross platforms in those markets.

Best example of what goes wrong when you tune for DirectX, and "port" to other platforms? The PS3 version of Skyrim.

Poor sods are way worse off than any PC player out there.
