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).

"What a surprise!" I expected this considering the wake-up call Valve sent to iD.

Back to the drawing board.

I have an idea... Maybe DukeNukem has a chance to make it in the line up this year? UGhhhhhhhhhhh??? No, I think not.

Damn, I was one of those who was expecting it just in time for the holidays. I guess there is much more work to be done on the game that I orginally thought. I read somewhere Carmack thought more would have been done at some point (several months back). Appearantly, this might be what he was afraid of. I guess I'll push back my upgrade for a few more months then. Half-Life 2 then is diffenently gonna make a killing 4th QTR.
