is the first out of the gate
to report that at id Software's press conference
this afternoon at QuakeCon, they have announced two new projects. Quake 4, which
is being developed by Raven Software, will utilize id's latest technology, and will bring the series back to the Strogg-universe featured in Quake II. Also
announced was an untitled, completely new franchise in development at Nerve
Software (who are also working on Return to Castle Wolfenstein's multiplayer),
which is said to be "a multiplayer co-op title using id technology."
Activision will be publishing the untitled project, Quake 4, and DOOM for the
Game Boy Advance. A publisher (or title, for that matter) for the new DOOM title
has not yet been announced. The press conference is still going on, and we'll
report more as it comes out. Update
: Another report is up at ShackES
, which also describes the new DOOM footage shown during John Carmack's talk, saying that it looks to be, "very dark, slow, and storyline-oriented." Update II:
The GameSpy Daily report originally mentioned "Matrix-style effects," but this turned out to be some sort of miscommunication on their end, and this portion of the article has been corrected.
