As long as id are financially okay and as said, no major redirection to focusing on engines, this can only be good news really. A next gen experience is probably what Doom needs to reinvent itself by this point. Rage 2...not a massive loss, but hopefully they get a chance to have a go at another original IP in the future.

I enjoy playing Doom 3 HD in 3D which is completely amazing considering its age!

Can't wait for Doom 4 in 3D on PlayStation 4...

Well, 'Rage' is just expendable!!

I agree with Zenimax, Doom has the potential to be as well known and as talked about as the Elder Scrolls. The article seemed to hint at people at id not liking or agreeing with this statement, why would they not want to be more well known, successful and popular?

Rage was a massive disappointment so Rage 2 is probably no big loss.

As excited as I am for Doom 4, I'm sad to hear about RAGE... I don't understand all the hate for that game, I really enjoyed it, and would have loved to see what they could do with another one.

I think Doom is getting a bit long toothed, but if they can reinvent and jump start the series again I'm all for it. As pretty as RAGE is, the story was very far from engaging, and it wasn't really meant to be the roaming, killing spree like Doom is.

I never really could get into Doom 3. I still play the original Doom so hopefully Doom 4 doesn't flop.

Well, there goes my hope of Doom 4 being shown at QuakeCon 2013... I thought RAGE was fantastic on the consoles, I just never play it because I do own it on the PC, and the graphical glitches are unbearable. id really just needs to focus on PC first, and work on console releases afterwards; PC development is what they're best at. That being said, I feel Zenimax would never allow that, the PC crowd is smaller than the population of the consoles. Furthermore, I feel Zenimax may be hoping for too much by trying to gain Skyrim's popularity with Doom 4. First person shooters are a saturated market, and to make Doom appeal to the mainstream would most likely mean changing it away from what existing Doom fans want.

Ahh, still waiting for DOOM 4, will be an epic game. I instaled DOOM 3 onto my laptop the other day, I never got to finish it due to my last PC crapping itself when it attempted to play it.

It's a shame that they've scrapped the Rage sequel. I think if they had a means of refining Rage's core elements and wrote a more interesting story - which could be done with a sequel if id aren't being lazy game designers - it could either be one of the best shooters in a long time, or a great way to start off the new generation.

Speaking of which, I hope Doom 4 kicks ass so I'll be motivated to upgrade my computer when it comes out.

Which brings the question of Doom 4's system requirements to mind. SLI GTX Titans required for medium quality? I wouldn't be surprised.

Take all the time you need to make Doom 4 right, guys. Better to have a well made, complete game than a rushed one with cut edges to make schedules, something all to common these days. Besides, with large gaps comes big expectations, I'd prefer they meet those expectations as well as can be done. If anything, making me wait to make it right makes me more likely to buy it.

Plus, the whole once a decade (1994 for Doom 2, 2004 for Doom 3) thing makes me oddly happy. I don't get why.

As for Rage... meh. It was a good try on their part, and it was nice to see they were going to try and fix the mistakes of the past one but I don't think it's a big loss that they've decided to drop it.
