OK, this has made my day. id Software has announced that production work has begun on Doom 4:

Doom 3
Production has begun on DOOM 4™, the next journey into the legendary DOOM universe. We are expanding our internal team and are currently hiring to work on this highly anticipated title.

"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, 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."

OK, I know that Doom 3 wasn't everyone's cup of tea, and that the game was far from perfect, but I can honestly say that it was the only game that really felt palpably scary to me. Sure, it felt scripted, and yes, it was almost impossible to complete without resorting to cheat codes, but it felt scary.

Who's willing to bet on Doom 4 (and maybe 5) coming out before Duke Nukem Forever. Any takers?

Thoughts?
