Doom won't be shown to the public until 2015

21 July 2014

Bethesda lifted the wraps off the long-delayed Doom reboot at QuakeCon last week, but for the rest of us, it is unlikely we’ll catch our first glimpse of the hotly anticipated FPS until 2015.

That’s at least according to marketing boss Pete Hines, who told PC Gamer:

“I try really, really hard for this to be a dev first, dev-lead thing. "We're working with [id Software] to say, 'How does this work? What do we want to show?' And they're like, 'Look, we don't want a stream to go up for a game that isn't at the point where we would formally show it to the world, and now that thing is getting picked apart, and digested, and gone through frame-by-frame and getting nitpicked to death, when normally we wouldn't be showing this to anybody at all.'"

“Next year is normally when I think we would've started," he said, though admitted things could change. Finally, Hines touched on the possibility of the QuakeCon stream being shown, stating he doesn't "think there's any way that happens."

Doom is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, with a beta available to those who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order earlier this year.
