It’s official, Bethesda’s Doom reboot is getting a sequel. The news was announced on stage at the publisher’s own keynote at E3 2018.
The 2016 reboot delivered one of the year’s finest shooters, and brought the series back to relevance for the first time since Doom 2 in 1994.
Doom Eternal looks like it’ll follow a similar format to the original Doom 2 by bringing the demon hordes to Earth.
We’ll have to wake for QuakeCon in August to see an official gameplay reveal though, E3’s trailer was just a teaser for what’s to come.
20 years is a long time for a series to fall out of the spotlight for, but Doom made us completely forget about the intervening years, and thankfully banished the so-so Doom 3 back into the monster closet where it belongs.
Bethesda has developed a real talent for bringing back old franchises that were otherwise thought dead and buried. It’s done it with Doom, it’s done it with Wolfenstein, and it did it so successfully with Fallout 3 that the world has practically forgotten about the first two games produced by Interplay.
