Bethesda’s Pete Hines seemingly teases upcoming Doom announcement for E3

For our younger posters, Doom 2 is named Doom 2: Hell On Earth.

During our conversation, we made light of the fact that Bethesda currently doesn’t have much planned for the latter half of this year. After he jokingly played coy and acted like he didn’t already know this, we asked when we might hear more about what they could have slated to release this year. He told us:

“I couldn’t give you any guesses as to what we’re going to announce and when those games will be out. But I will say, we have a lot of new stuff to talk about at E3. Whether or not folks realize it, this is the hell on Earth time for us with E3. We are in the midst of so much planning and work for all of that content but I’m really excited.

I think we have a lot of stuff that folks are going to like. To my earlier comment, it’s going to be a big mix of stuff that’s all over the place. It’s not going to be like all [one] kind of game or genre. It’s going to be a lot of stuff in a lot of different areas and hopefully, there’s something in there for everybody.”

Directly into my veins
Doom 2016 was such a positive experience, and I went day 1 completely blind.

Another one this fast? There really is No Rest For The Living.

You know, Cacodemon, we really are the Master Levels for Doom II.

Bethesda and id, if you launch the Switch version of DOOM 2 day-and-date with the other platforms, I will buy your new game twice at release. PS4 and Switch.

Ditch the "2", call it DOOMED ... or DOOMED: Earth as a throwback to Doom 2: Hell On Earth.

Give me that DOOM 2 Hell on Earth, absolutely loved the 2016 game and was the only FPS that didn't bore me apart from OW.

Based on his saying "and hopefully, there’s something in there for everybody" I would say it's very likely there will be something for the Switch as well (fingers crossed, I hope it won't be just a date for Wolfenstein 2).

Also I really wish they wouldn't do hell on Earth as a setting. Space Hell has nigh infinite possibilities to mine. Going back down to earth is just ehhhh in comparison.

Late 2018 would be pretty quick after DOOM's early 2016 release, but I suppose even if it's coming early 2019 they'll want to show it at this E3. Interesting.

Hell. Fucking. Yes.

DOOM 2016 has arguably the finest gameplay mechanics in any FPS, ever.

I'd love to see an absolutely straightforward no-bullshit sequel. I don't know why so many games lately decide to change engines for the sequels (Wolfenstein, Deus Ex, Dishonored, etc) when it always causes problems. Doom was damn near perfect - just make more of it, that's all. More enemies, more level variety, more guns, that's the recipe right there. No need to fuck with any back-end stuff whatsoever.

This alone is all the reason I need to watch Bethesda’s conference. Doom is a gem of a FPS that I didn’t realize we would ever get again.

I recently completed Doom on the Switch and absolutely loved it. I'm completely ready for Doom 2: Tear Them A New One.

So... let's take Doom 2016's near-perfect shooting mechanisms. The level designs were good for today's standards, but they can improve on them, especially by making so the enemy encounters aren't always teleporting monsters. More enemy variety would be nice, too. And then, like Doom 2, it needs to go back to Earth. The only bad aspect of Doom 4's cancellation in favor of the reboot is that they scrapped Earth to do yet another Doom 3-like soft reboot, putting us on Mars again. I've been waiting for decades (not kidding) to have another Doom set on Earth. 15 years ago or so I'd fantasize about an eventual Doom game on Earth where a giant cyberdemon would walk between buildings, making them crumble, and you, the player, having to run between the dust, the falling pieces, the debris on the ground as you empty your rocket launcher into his enormous body. I don't know if a new Doom will deliver this, probably not, but it's a childhood dream to get a "next-gen" Doom on Earth. And given how amazing the reboot's gameplay is, I could lose my shit if they pull it off.

Definitely my most enjoyed fps campaign since Halo 3 ODST. I'm ready for the next DOOM, especially on the Switch!

The game's plot should be able to fit on a 24 hour diner napkin, yes

"and DOOMguy goes to earth..."
