DOOM Eternal | Porting the game to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would be logical, say developers

We are in a time window in which any new major video game release will be faced with the same question: will there be a version for the latest generation? With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X coming out this year, there are likely to be questions about what happens to the main games released on current generation consoles before the next generation arrives.

One of the biggest (and closest) future games is DOOM Eternal, and with developers promising to take full advantage of current hardware, and with the game being built with the new id Tech 7, these questions were asked to id developers Software too.

Recently, answering that question while talking to Metro, DOOM Eternal director Marty Stratton said that while id Software hasn’t yet talked about next-generation consoles, it’s something that excites them. Stratton also admitted that porting the DOOM Eternal to the PS5 and Xbox Series X and ensuring that the game is among the best experiences available on these platforms would be a “logical” thing to do.

“We haven’t talked about it yet, but one of the interesting things is that we’re at the end of this console cycle, where our team knows this technology very, very well,” said Stratton. “So it really allowed us to get the most out of this hardware. And I’m super excited about what that means for the next hardware. ”

DOOM Eternal arrives on March 20 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
