The latest report comes from Insider Gaming. This report confirms that Xbox is set to showcase id Software’s next Doom project at June’s major showcase.

The report suggests that this game is titled Doom: The Dark Ages, with development lasting as long as four years. Not much else is known at the moment, but the source speculates that this story may give fans a glimpse at an earlier version of the Doom Slayer.

This was already done in Doom Eternal to some extent, with flashbacks highlighting an earlier version of this character. Anyhow, with id Software set to return after 2020, there is sure to be excitement among the fandom.

A medieval fantasy setting could also allow id Software to provide a more methodical gameplay feel to this franchise. The faster pace of 2020’s entry became a common critique among longtime fans, who felt the game was leaning too far into Quake’s DNA.

While nothing has been confirmed for now, multiple sources have corroborated the reports. At this point, all that’s left to do is wait for Xbox’s official announcement on June 9.
