In an interview with FiringSquad, Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software, has revealed that the company is looking forward to bring more games to Xbox Live Arcade depending on the response to DOOM. Originally created in 1993 by id Software, DOOM was released on September 27, 2006, during X06. The port was developed for Xbox Live Arcade by Nerve Software.

Here is what Mr. Hollenshead said:

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 :)

Come onnnnnnn Wolfenstein...

If there are gonna be more id games come out why not just create an update for the quake 2 disc (that came free with Q4) and give that some achievement points:)

was Descent an id game?

It would be nice to see more ID titles out. I dont care what it is. They did a good job with DOOM so bringing any more 1st person shooters would be a plus. There are many who would like to see DOOM 2: Hell on Earth, Quake series, & Final DOOM be confirmed instead of just hearing a rumor/s about the game/s- which dates back to last January of 2007. And your "source" that you've posted- says Oct. 12th, 2006 4:45 am....that's pretty old. :P

It would be nice to see Wolfenstein on XBLA.

02-16-2008, 06:57 PM
It would be nice to see Wolfenstein on XBLA. I agree. but I'm having enough trouble with doom at the moment :(

02-21-2008, 01:49 AM
Well sadly no future DOOM games are confirmed, but we are getting duke nukem 3D!


04-03-2008, 12:04 PM
I hope that Wolfenstein,Doom 2(it's my favorite doom)comes to xbox live
or duke nukem was fun too.

04-07-2008, 02:56 AM
I wouldn't mind Doom 2 myself. Since I had enjoyed playing Doom already, which I never would've thought at first.

04-07-2008, 10:23 PM
I would like to see Wolfenstein, Doom II, and Final Doom added to the arcade.

Ya Doom II and Final Doom would be a sweet add-on.

What other good games did ID make? That is before my time.

04-10-2008, 07:29 AM
Does Catacombs 3d count? I loved that game and would buy it no problem on xbla...

"the Catacomb series created by the founders of id Software (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id_Software), published by Softdisk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softdisk)."

"an enhanced version of Catacombs technology was later used for the more successful and well-known Wolfenstein 3D (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfenstein_3D)."

"Catacombs introduced the concept of showing the player (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Player_%28game%29)'s hand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand) in the three-dimensional viewport"

That would be amazing if they released Doom2,Duke Nukem, or Wolfenstien. Thats just too much awesome right there

That would be amazing if they released Doom2,Duke Nukem, or Wolfenstien. Thats just too much awesome right there

id didn't make Duke Nukem, that was Apogee (now 3DRealms).
Though they are close neighbors (neighbours for you that speak English english) and were at one point, good business partners (Prey by 3DRealms used the id Tech 4 engine (formerly the Doom3 engine))).

DOOM 2 for the sake of nostalgia and Final DOOM would be fun trying to get achievements in

Doom II and Wolfenstein would be awesome.

Doom II and Quake 2

Quake 2 came with Quake 4, has achievements but all worth 0 points :(

I know they're coming out with Quake Arena Arcade but I wanna see Doom II and I would crap in my pants if they put my favorite arcade games of all time on XBLA: Commander Keen.

EDIT: I guess I just read that Quake Arena Arcade is cancelled just because they care more about Quake Live on PC.

09-03-2008, 08:44 PM
Oh yes! :D

10-20-2008, 09:07 PM
Quake 2 came with Quake 4, has achievements but all worth 0 points :(

And had no multiplayer, which is basically a waste of time since Quake2 is the greatest deathmatch game of all time.

What we need are Quake 1-2 and Final Doom.

10-22-2008, 06:56 AM
Quake2 is the greatest deathmatch game of all time.

It's up there, but I wouldn't call it the greatest. I liked Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, Counterstrike, etc...but I guess those aren't all Id Games...

I would love to see DOOM 2 & FINAL DOOM on XBLA
that would be fantastic......

01-30-2009, 03:41 AM
Doom II + Master Levels would be great.
Final Doom was really difficult, so getting achievements would be really hard, especially if it's on Ultra-Violence D:

Duke Nukem 3D has been released...
Quake II has been released with Quake 4
Quake (III) Arena is coming to the Arcade...

I'd actually like to see Blood come to the arcade. It was fairly good.

02-09-2009, 01:14 PM
I'd love to have Doom2 on my xbox. The levels on that are more suitable for deathmatch. The weapon layout for DM is horrible in Doom 1.

02-19-2009, 12:14 AM
Doom2, final doom, the first quake. quake 2. maybe the quake 2 expansion packs?

02-19-2009, 01:55 PM
It would be nice to see Wolfenstein on XBLA.

It would just be another case of people buying it.. playing it a bit then letting it rot on their HD.. just as they did with Doom and Duke Nukem. Poor classics..

02-19-2009, 02:15 PM
Watchoo talking about? Lots of people still play both duke and doom!

02-23-2009, 02:51 PM
Indeed, I would also like to see Wolfenstein + Spear of Destiny

I have a funny feeling that they might release Doom II & Final Doom on XBLA about a month or so before the upcoming Doom 4 . . just to hyper things up :)
