Bethesda on Doom 4: "No title in development at id Software has been postponed"

Publisher slaps down id Software cancellation rumour

Rumours of Doom 4's demise were greatly exaggerated, it seems. Bethesda has hit back at a report that the id Software project has been cancelled.

Rage dazzled some, disappointed others.

"Games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed," the company said to OXM in a statement. "Indefinitely or otherwise."

A source close to Kotaku claimed that the long-awaited new Doom had been shelved this morning, citing publisher upset over review scores and technical difficulties.

The Xbox 360 version of Rage currently has a Metacritic average of 81 - a hair's breadth from our own review score. How would you have scored it? Let us know in the latest Friday poll.
