Posted on February 28, 2012, CJ Miozzi Doom 4 Canceled, Screenshots Leaked (RUMOR)

Rumors that Doom 4 has been canceled came with a bounty of screenshots allegedly taken from the game. GameInformer’s Jim Reilly quickly denied the cancellation rumors via Twitter, but the screenshots remain unaccounted for.

Reilly tweeted:

Bethesda says Doom 4 is not canceled.

The screenshots depict a post-apocalyptic setting, similar to 1994′s Doom 2: Hell on Earth. Doom 3 was a call-back to the original Doom’s space station setting, so it’s not a stretch to believe Doom 4 would revisit Earth.

While we suspect these screenshots may simply be post-apocalyptic 3d artwork taken from a graphic designer’s portfolio, we were unable to find any evidence to support this theory. However, the pictures do suggest a post-apocalyptic present-day, rather than the post-apoc future you’d expect from a setting with space marines.

For instance, consider this screenshot:

Which seems to exactly depict the logo of this restaurant:

And a better view:

Other real locations depicted in the screenshots include McDonald’s, Collision Center, and Jill’s Paint.

Do you believe these screenshots are “fake?”
