DOOM: The Dark Ages Set to be Unveiled at Xbox Games Showcase – Insider Gaming Drops Exclusive Details on Medieval Inspired Sequel

Los Angeles, California –

The highly anticipated reveal of the next game in the DOOM franchise is generating excitement ahead of the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9. Sources familiar with the matter have disclosed that the game, previously known by the codename ‘Year Zero’, will officially be titled ‘DOOM: The Dark Ages’ and has been in development for a minimum of four years.

Speculation surrounding the new DOOM installment began circulating last year, with early details hinting at a unique ‘medieval inspired doom world’. While specifics remain scarce, terms such as ‘year zero’, ‘the dark ages’, and ‘medieval inspired’ suggest a shift towards a new and intriguing direction for the series. Could fans potentially be treated to a glimpse into the Doomslayer’s past during medieval times? Perhaps a prequel storyline is in the works?

Recent rumors gained traction following the registration of the trademark ‘IDKFA,’ a well-known cheat code in the DOOM series by Bethesda. The buzz was further fueled by a teaser from The Verge’s Tom Warren, indicating DOOM’s presence at the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase, a claim that has now been independently confirmed.

The DOOM franchise has been a consistent powerhouse for both Xbox and ID Software. According to a LinkedIn profile of an ID Software employee in 2020, the game reportedly raked in over $450 million in revenue, cementing its status as a commercial success.

The prospect of a new DOOM game set in a Medieval backdrop has stirred curiosity among fans. The potential for exploring a different era opens up exciting possibilities for gameplay and storytelling. Share your thoughts on this unique direction for DOOM in the comments below.
