Developer id Software is one of the most influential developers in the first-person-shooter genre, having popularized it back in the 90s with the genre-defining Wolfenstein andnDOOM. Almost 30 years later, the now-Microsoft owned id Software continues to pioneer the genre with its innovative and thoughtful first-person shooter design, as evident from the likes of DOOM‘s 2016 reboot and its excellent follow-up DOOM Eternal, which shipped in 2020.
We don’t yet know what’s in the works at id Software currently, although a current job opening might suggest something along the lines of yet another new DOOM game (not that we are complaining). As listed on ZeniMax’s Careers page, id Software is looking for a combat designer who has extensive knowledge of “recent id games, including DOOM and DOOM Eternal.”
Additionally, the opening also requires applicants to preferably have a background in mod or indie development. It might also be possible that a Quake revival could be in the works, but it’s hard to ascertain that at the moment. Either way, fans can most likely expect to hear a formal announcement for the studio’s next game in the hopefully not-too-distant-future.
