Id Software has announced that production has begun on DOOM 4, and the developer is "expanding its internal team" to work on the next installment of the spooky shooter.
"DOOM is part of the id Software DNA and demands the greatest talent and brightest minds in the industry to bring the next installment of our flagship franchise to Earth," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software.
"It's critical for id Software to have the best creative minds in-house to develop games that meet the standards synonymous with our titles."
According to the official blurb, id is looking for "talented, ambitious and passionate individuals" to join the team working on the game. We're assuming development it isn't that far along then.
That puts Rage and Doom 4 (plus Quake Zero and mobile games) in development at the tiny developer. Assuming it's using the Rage tech, we should expect it on PS3, 360 and PC simultaneously.
