Rumor: DOOM 4 screenshots leaked

Bethesda: Doom 4 is not canceled.

Some DOOM 4 ‘developments’ today. Korean game site Playwares posted a portfolio of screenshots said to be from DOOM 4, supposedly shared by the game’s ex-director. 

Courtesy of Dresden, the Playwares post reads:

Not official. It’s a portfolio uploaded piece-by-piece by the ex-director.

The title being used is “Doom,” but it could change, don’t know what’s official and what could be changed later on.

The atmosphere is very similar to Rage, so the fear is that the graphics will raise some problems later on.

Doom’s background was always space, but this time, it appears to be on Earth.

PC and XBOX360, PS3 are being targeted, unlike Rage it won’t be locked at 30 fps (PC version is perhaps 60 frames?)

The plan is to have lots of monsters from past Doom games appear in the game.

A post went up on 4Chan today claiming the game was canceled, and posted the Playwares screenshots unsourced. Bethesda has since told Game Informer’s Jim Reilly that DOOM 4 is not canceled, though, did not confirm or deny the validity of the screenshots, which we’ve posted below.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
