id Software technical guru John Carmack has told OPM UK anyone expecting to wait a long time for DOOM 4 will have a shorter wait than first thought.

Carmack told the mag the shooter shouldn’t take as long to get out the door, unlike RAGE, which was announced in 2007 at QuakeCon, and won’t be out until next year, producer Tim Willits told VG247 back in May.

“Well we’ve got Doom 4 going on right now below our feet here,” he said.

“The Doom team are all sped up and working on this technology base – I’m not really at liberty to discuss much about it, but it’s going full steam ahead right now.

He adds: “It shouldn’t take as long to ship as Rage. It’s already in the pipeline and we feel good about it.”

id’s Todd Hollenshed told Nathan Grayson at last year’s QuakeCon to expect first information on the game this year. The opening keynote of this year’s event with Hollenshed and Carmack is tomorrow night.

Go figure.

Just FYI: Carmack’s on Twitter now. Go nuts.
