    At this time, there's no official date for either it or the PC version.

    Carmack made a comment last year about not wanting it to be the kind of game shown at lots of E3s, which people read as meaning it will be released before, or shortly after, this year's E3, but again, nothing formal has been announced.

    As with all iD games, it'll be out "when it's done".

    But I wouldn't be surprised to see it make it out in time for Christmas. Of course I wouldn't be surprised to see it come out in Summer 2004, either.

    At least they release some screen shots and all, how about Duke Nukem?!? That one must be dead in the water.

    Nope, DN 3-D is still kicking [​IMG]

    Daikatana is starting to look on-time in comparison [​IMG]

    Didn't they change the engine for Duke 4 Forever, again? I think they were using the Quake 2 engine to start, then switched to Unreal and I think I heard that they switched again to Quake 3. I'm not sure about the Quake 3, but I know they switched from Quake to Unreal.

    Any extra version of Doom 3 I doubt will be out until a few months after the PC version. So once a release date is announced for that you can probably tack on a few and that'll give you a good idea.

    id Software has never shown a game at E3 twice and they say they never intend to. Looks like this will be a first (I highly doubt they'd just skip out on E3).

    I like the quotations. Is there some kind of conspiracy theory going around?

    The last one I found interesting was when Harry Knowles got to see Star Wars: Ep 2, through his unnamed contacts months before anyone else did. The conspiracy was that Lucasfilm pretty much let Knowles view it so he can give a good review, which means an even larger crowd when the movie opened.

    Well either way, Carmack was pissed about the whole situation. He probably fired up his rail gun and crucified the person that put it up on the net for download.

    Oh I definately don't see it being Xbox exclusive exclusive. PC version is definately coming. [​IMG]
    It would be big kudos to MS and the Xbox though if the Xbox was the only console to get it.

    Can't wait to see what happens at E3. Finally get to go this year. [​IMG]

    Lucky you. I went in 96 and have been unable to return since then.
