A new Doom game looks like it might be announced at the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9. The Verge's Tom Warren recently teased "Microsoft will be banking on some new game announcements lifting the Doom around Xbox" and Eurogamer has also claimed to have heard from sources a new Doom game would be announced at the showcase.

Insider Gaming's Tom Henderson is now claiming Doom: The Dark Ages will be announced at the Xbox Games Showcase and the previously leaked title of Doom: Year Zero was a codename/placeholder.

Henderson says the game has been in development for at least four years and says it is set in a "medieval inspired doom world."

ZeniMax in January filed a trademark for "IDKFA," which is a cheat code in the original Doom games. in the 1990s.

I hope it is not exclusive because Doom deserves a large audience. If it is exclusive it would be a pretty major exclusive though

Natethehate has said it is coming to PS5. When it comes to MS and not being exclusive I don't think you have to hope very hard anymore.

Indeed, Xbox already have enough "exclusive Doom", they can share this one.
