A few weeks ago at X0, Microsoft and id Software announced that Doom was coming to the Xbox Live Arcade.
Since then, people have been wondering if other great titles from id Software are going to come out for the Arcade. Titles like Doom II, Final Doom, Hexen, Heretic, Wolfenstein 3D and even good old Commander Keen. FiringSquad decided to contact id’s CEO Todd Hollenshead to find out if more older id Software titles could be in the works. Here’s what he told us:
We’re looking at bringing some of the other games to XLA, but a lot is going to depend on the response to DOOM. From what MS tells us, its been fantastic so far, which bodes well for other id “classics” to be released there. But there’s nothing concrete. Making the surprise announcement at X06 for DOOM worked out great, so I’ll be tight lipped about anything specific for now…
What software company does not want to get some more money off what is basically a second run of making their old properties popular again?
