Doom Eternal Executive Producer Speaks Out
“Whenever we come out, or whatever levels of backward compatibility, I know there’s a lot of discussions around exactly how it’s going to work, but we want to be one of the best looking, besting playing games on that platform right away. We are actively looking at it, and very excited by it and I think in an awesome position,” said Marty Stratton.
“We’re at the end of a hardware cycle where engine teams really understand the hardware and are getting the most out of it. We’ve increased graphics fidelity, polygon count… everything is pushed in this game and it still runs on all the consoles that Doom 2016 ran on.”
From the looks of it, the developers at id Software are doing their best to capitalize on the performance improvements that Xbox One Series and PlayStation 5 will introduce. Not only that, but the game will also look and run better on the current-gen Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Official Release Date
Even though Marty Stratton talked about how an enhanced version of the game is going to launch on next-gen consoles, Doom Eternal is first going to launch on March 20 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Google Stadia.
