Doom III and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Delayed until 2004

Doom III is delayed until at least the first quarter of 2004, with ID saying it will come out "when it's done."

Are we sure that Blizzard isn't developing these titles?

Doom 3 is probably being delayed to allow the guys at Id time to play Half-Life 2.

We all saw that coming with Doom. I'd be willing to bet we don't see it by E3 of next year.

I'm thinking Valve has done the smarter thing by not building up the hype any more than necessary until now for Half Life 2.

Obviously Doom III will sell a ton of copies, but this much build up has got to work against you at some point.

Argh!! I knew it would happen to Final Fantasy:Crystal Chronicles. I was really looking forward to that one. But February is usually a slow month for games so having a game like Final Fantasy coming out during that month is pretty nice .

Indeed, it was wise of Valve to hold off until now to reveal the shroud from Half-life 2. The anticipation will probably be greater for HL2.

HL2 will own all. Ill get Doom3, of course, but the idea of playing updated versions of TFC/DoD etc (hopefully some1 updates em!) is just to much!

In the tradition of Duke Nukem Forever...we bring you Doom 3. Never to be released in our lifetimes.

Yeah, exactly - I mean, check out this excerpt from the 3D Realms official website:

----------------------------------------------
The screenshots and videos that were here have been removed as they no longer represent the game's current look and feel. We will put more up at a later date.
----------------------------------------------



I'm guessing they looked like this...

Seriously, one of id's programmers was reported to be "scared and depressed" after seeing HL2 at the last E3. Maybe they're holding it back to kick it up a notch.
