Rumor: ‘Doom 4′ headed to Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4

Doom 4, which is expected to be the next big first-person shooter from seasoned developer id Software, seems to be headed to both Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles.

Lead programmer Brian Harris hinted at the game’s development through, of course, his Twitter account. His Linkedin has him down as the lead behind Doom 4 until January 2012, when he moved over to Doom 3 BFG. A single Tweet seems to suggest that he’s now back on the game.

“Currently home taking care of a new baby girl,” Harris said when asked about his current work situation. “When I get back, I’ll help port the big project to new platforms.”

While he never actually typed out “Doom 4,” his Tweet makes it sound like he’s moving that game from current gen to what’s coming next. So, it may be a launch title that straddles the technological fence.

We’ll have to just wait and see if this comes be at a later date.
