Rumor: Doom: The Dark Ages Will be a Multiplatform Title and Also Release on PS5 - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 June 2024 / 3,384 Views

It was recently reported Doom: The Dark Ages will be announced at the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9 that also claims it  has been in development for at least four years and says it is set in a "medieval inspired doom world."

Leaker NateTheHate via Twitter is claiming Doom: The Dark Ages will be a multiplatform release with it coming to the PlayStation 5.

Doom developer id Software was acquired by Bethesda owner ZeniMax in 2009, which ended up being acquired by Microsoft in 2021. This means id Software is a first-party Xbox studio and a PlayStation 5 version was not certain, even if the previous two Doom games released on PlayStation consoles.

Other evidence Doom: The Dark Ages is real is that ZeniMax in January filed a trademark for "IDKFA," which is a cheat code in the original Doom games. in the 1990s. 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 Xbox Games Showcase.

Cool. More people get to enjoy the game and Xbox users can still play it via Game Pass. Win-win.

Would you say the same if they announced Indiana Jones, Avowed, Hellblade 2, Starfield was to release on PS5?

Of course or else I wouldn't have said what I said.

Yes! I buy a platform to play what I like. The Playstation currently doesn't have a game that would make me buy the console, so all that would be left are Nintendo games (which are great, but the same thing), XBox games which I like Age of Empires, Doom, Quake, Forza Horizon , Wolfenstein, Diablo, The Elder Scrolls and others.

Although many games are released for various platforms, I prefer to buy an XBox or build a PC than buy a Playstation, as Microsoft is not forcing me to stay on that platform, which is why it has play anywhere and smart delivery. If the rumors about the partnership between Steam, Epic Games and GOG are true, that is, if stores come to the console, it would only be an even greater attraction for me to give preference to the brand, especially if they launch a portable console and another high-performance console . I love the possibility of starting something on the PC or console, continuing the game on the street with the mobile and finishing it at home with the PC or console.

Your opinion is indeed correct. Multiplatform releases serve as a source of funding for development studios and increase the player base, which actually benefits Xbox users as well.
