Doom 4

"[It] will be done when it's done."

John Carmack, founder of iD Software, talking about Doom 4 at this weekend's QuakeCon LAN event. Both Doom 4 and Doom 3 BFG Edition, due out October 16 and will support head-mounted displays, such as the forthcoming Oculus Rift, which is currently undergoing a Kickstarter campaign. However, don't expect the headgear ready by Doom 3 BFG's launch. PC Mag reports the Oculus Rift will "offer six degrees of freedom for head-tracking, a 110-degree diagonal and 90-degree horizontal field of view, and a 640-by-800-resolution screen for each eye."

Sounds like we're about to get a lot more face time with our favorite first-person shooters.
