If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

We gotta figure out what the hell these Russians are doing.

Lo and behold, it's the original version of Doom 4, featuring brown, grey, hellnukes, a ripoff of HL2's citadel and what appears to be a metrocop with a UAC logo on his back.

Dear god, is this what the original intent was? This makes Doom 3 look good by leaps and bounds.

This is the scrapped version of Doom 4 and have nothing to do with the current new Doom title. Back then, even the dev team was calling it "Call of Doom" and was ultimately canceled because it was "suffering from identity crisis". These news are from 2013 though, and i'm surprised they are appearing here now. EDIT - I've re-read the thread and noticed this isn't supposed to be a news thread. Sorry, it's already dawn here and i'm very sleepy.

Looks more like Metro 2035 than Doom 4.

Where is all this even coming from? Has its legitimacy been proven at all?

The problem is that, id Software isn't the same enterprise we used to know on 1990~2000, so don't expect Doom 4 to be actually "Doom"

In fact i don't see any hope for any of the old games, Valve is the only one which still keep the same team, however they are delaying all this long for a Half Life 3 or any other sequence due to fear what game industry became.

According to that video, I also managed to find a supposed cinematic for the canned Doom 4 (or at least a snippet):

https://vimeo.com/117437076

Yeow. And to think that this was going to be the Doom 4 we were going to get. I get that Hell on Earth can be painted in a darker light, but as some sort of war drama? Just no.

What the hell kind of mismanagement does a company have to be under to think this is even remotely a good idea?

"The ENB is here"?

Sounds about right.

On the bright side, the current Doom 4 sounds much more appealing.

Why are you so convinced that the real Doom 4 is less like COD than this rather than more so? I don't have any expectations for Doom 4 other than another COD: Ghosts. Or more like COD: """Demons""". Because that's what sells these days, and as was mentioned, id is definitely not the same id it used to be.

At least they appear to have concept art for demons and the woman pictured is actually wearing proper body armor.
