QuakeCon: XBLA Doom II Confirmed

By SeraphimNeeded, 9 years ago
QuakeCon started in Dallas, TX, today. One of the major activities of the day was a press conference. As such, expect a swarm of info on id's new projects.

The first news story we are hearing confirmation of is related to Doom and the Xbox Live Arcade. When the first Doom came out on the arcade, everyone was expecting to see the later games show up quickly. That didn't really happen and left many wondering why. Id confirmed today during the conference however that Doom II is indeed being ported by Nerve Software, the company that handled the port of the first game. They made no mention of a date, so right now we are in wait-and-see mode.

On a side note, I'll be heading down there to attend the con in about an hour on Saturday (my wife informed me at the last minute of a change of plans), so hopefully we'll be able to have some more instances of hands on reporting. I'm hoping to keep my twitter updated frequently for those interested (http://twitter.com/seraphimneeded).
