Speaking of doom 3, when is it's release date? do they have one yet?
My ongoing prediction is this:December 9th or 10th, 2003
1. December 10th is when DOOM
Shareware was released
2. Quake 2
, Quake 3: Arena
and Quake 3: Team Arena
all shipped on those dates.
3. The first week of December gives the maximum amount of time to work on the game without missing Christmas. It's a little close to Christmas but since it's an id Software game they can get away with it. If an unanticipated game shipped that late, they'd get glossed over.
