Ouch, looks like you’ll be waiting for DOOM footage for quite a while.
Pete Hines, in speaking with PC Gamer has made it clear that the footage Quakecon attendees were shown is the only time anyone will see the game until 2015. This was already hinted at before hand with the Quakecon reveal, but it has now been confirmed.
Hines told PC Gamer, “I try really, really hard for this to be a dev first, dev-lead thing. “We’re working with [id Software] to say, ‘How does this work? What do we want to show?’ And they’re like, ‘Look, we don’t want a stream to go up for a game that isn’t at the point where we would formally show it to the world, and now that thing is getting picked apart, and digested, and gone through frame-by-frame and getting nitpicked to death, when normally we wouldn’t be showing this to anybody at all.'” He continued on to note that 2015 would normally be when they would show the game.
Surprising enough, there have been no leaks from the event so that should give you an idea of just how tight security was for media equipment. Essentially, the developers needed a confidence boost in their product and that is why they decided to show the game off at Quakecon. From the sounds of it, they’re doing a good job so far and don’t have a whole lot to worry about.
