nah. Carmack just made the tech, which was reallly great. look at DOOM 3. An alright game but not a great game. But the tech is great.

If they have a great dev team and ok tech, they'll be fine without him.

Or they could make another Failout.

This. Seriously. People need to stop worshiping Carmack. He was the programmer. Romero and the others gave those games their soul.

And without Carmack's tech there would be no Id games - each were equally important.

Worshipping a single developer is rather short-sighted in any case. Carmack didn't make Doom. Romero didn't make Doom. id made Doom and that id clearly doesn't exist anymore. Then again, maybe the new id is just as talented.

I guess that, after Rage flopped, they've been tight on budget and are having some trouble revealing Doom 4. After a somewhat disappointing D3, the whole series may go down the drain if D4 is not a hit.

There's been a few news stories over the years that mention how Doom 4's development has been plagued by corporate politics as well as poor design choices that resulted in having to essentially restart the project all over again.

Personally, I don't have much hope for Doom 4 being a good game, let alone as good as it's predecessors, and that's if it ever even sees release. I didn't particularly like Doom 3, either and it being a reboot of the series didn't help it in my eyes. Doom and Doom 2 were amazing games, and with modern rendering engines they still hold up very well. But more than likely Doom 4 will either be another franchise reboot or a continuation from Doom 3.
