I thought a bit about this and finally came up with the only possible solution for this mystery:
Carmack is going to announce that he is leaving id to join Romero at his new company MonkeyStone and make Daikatana 2.
Meanwhile id will announce that, lacking a good in-house engine, they changed the setting and name of Doom 3. It will now be called "Commander Keen 3D" and use the current LithTech engine.
The second new game from id will be outsourced to Rogue and will have the working title "The DOOM guy in the land of the babes", featuring the strong, charismatic main character from the DOOM games in a "mass-market" environment.
There. You see it's quite obvious once you get right down to it. Believe me: that's exactly what is going to happen
No, really. Keep your expectations down. This is marketing and they'll probably announce that they're going to make an announcement at next years E3 or something... This comment was edited on Jul 10, 04:25.
