A Doom sequel looks likely to be announced at E3.
In an interview DualShockers, Bethesda marketing guy Pete Hines either gave the least subtle hint ever that Doom II is coming, or just expertly raised our collective hopes in order to dash them come June.
“I couldn’t give you any guesses as to what we’re going to announce and when those games will be out,” Hines said. “But I will say, we have a lot of new stuff to talk about at E3. Whether or not folks realise it, this is the hell on Earth time for us with E3.”
For those confused: Hell of Earth is the subtitle of id Software’s 1994 industry-shaking FPS sequel Doom II.
Hines also pretty much confirmed that last year’s possibly underappreciated immersive sim Prey is getting DLC.
“I don’t think you’ve heard the last of Prey,”he said. “I just couldn’t tell you precisely when you might hear more.”
In early March, Bethesda appeared to tease moon-based DLC for the mimic-infested game, so surely it will float into view at this year’s E3.
Hines said that Bethesda’s E3 line-up was “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.”
Elsewhere in the interview, he reiterated his company’s commitment to the Switch, divulging that Bethesda was looking to port everything possible to Nintendo’s hybrid console.
“We are leaving no stone unturned,” he said.
Bethesda has recently ported Wolfenstein II, Doom and Skyrim to the Switch.
