People have been waiting for Doom 4 for what seems like forever, and many expected news of the upcoming first-person shooter to be unveil at QuakeCon 2013. But, during id Software's Technical Director, John Carmack's keynote speech for QuakeCon 2013, only a tiny piece was revealed.

There were only a few seconds dedicated to Doom 4 talk during his three-hour long speech, where a fan asked if Carmark could provide any update on Doom 4's development, to which Carmark replied: "I can't. I actually asked about whether I could say anything related to the development, and the answer was, no, I couldn't."

 

Doom 4 was coming, until they had to scrap the entire project and start again. We heard about this a while ago, with Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks said during a statement to Kotaku: "An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect. As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise."
