DOOM 3 April 15?

Doom 3 due April 15 on GameSpot reveals what they call the "official," albeit still not officially announced ship date for the PC version of id Software's shooter sequel, attributing this information to an insider at Activision. There is, however, a bit of uncertainty to the use of "may" in the statement "GameSpot learned that Activision may be planning to ship the PC Doom 3 on April 15," and id Software has long held "when it's done" as the release date for all their projects. They also report the release date for the Xbox version is not certain yet. Update: This story has been subsequently pulled without further explanation.

It would be awesome if it came out then, but I really doubt that it will. They've changed the release date like 10 times so far so if it happens, I'll be happy and if it doesn't I'll have seen it coming.

Man, I won't even touch this game unless my rig is up to it. Sure isn't what I want it to be now.
Hey, Blue, You love me. Hows about you loan me $500?

id has NEVER given a release date, not once....see that part blue put in the news about them saying "When it's done". It is other people that has said release dates, NOT id.

But....this means a demo coming soon if true!!!!

yeah well, unless you haven't noticed, they've could just as easily refer to the publishers, or the gaming community, or the retailers or just about anyone.

That would be a nice birthday present if it came out then. However, I'll believe it when I see it in my hands.

I'm not sure how my rig will run it (P4 2.53 Ghz, 1 Gig RAM and 9700Pro), but I'll give it a whirl and upgrade if needed.

I'm still pretty confident this will be out around April-June -ish, but this is, of course, music to my ears =D

Why do you think they are shipping it on the 15th? You should have your taxes filed and know just how big a return to expect. The return goes to upgrades. See?

This past weekends Best Buy ad had a big DOOM3 demon plastered in the computer ad section. Upgrade now to be able to play the next gen game like Doom3. I don't think they would go out on a limb and ask people to upgrade unless some sort of confirmation has been forwarded to the retail channels.
If it's happening more and more ads will promote it.

Sounds pretty spot-on to me. I've been hearing 'before E3' for about a month or so.

I am SO drunk right now! Serioulsy though, if it's out April 15th, then I buy it. If it's not, I can't. I shall (and indeed I shall) buy it when it appears on the shelf. Nice to at least know where the ballpark is, even if April 15th's not a hard target.

#6, ur rig is plenty. On my old rig which was a AMD Athlon 1.5ghz, 512mb SDRAM, GF4 Ti 4400 128mb, I was able to run the alpha just about flawlessly and it wasn't even optomized. I even ran it on my Geforce 2 before I got my Geforce 4 at the time.(I don't recommend that :D) My current rig is perfect for it with my GF4ti4400 still in though ordered a GFFX 5900 which should come by Friday. Don't worry, you'll be fine. Cheers!

Gamespot has now removed that page.

I find that highly interesting to say the least.

Activision pr d00d: Hey, get rid of that page now we want this to stay secret!

Gamespot d00d: OK!

Heh, and the 9800 Pros are getting mucho cheap. But I'll be honest, I'm not looking forward to this game. 3 years of hype kinda ruined it for me. I'm kinda looking forward to killing in the tropical sunshine of Far-Cry.

If Doom 3 is official for April, for me it's some hell of months coming up.(and I thought 2004 was gonna blow besides D3 and HL2). Let's see...Far-Cry, Painkiller, Sacred, Unreal Tourny2k4, Battlefield Vietnam, and a possible Doom 3. Looking very good for 2004 so far with a strong start. Cheers!
