Doom Eternal just wrapped up on the rebooted series’ story with The Ancient Gods – Part Two this month, but don’t think that the ripping and tearing is done just yet.
In an interview with Polygon, Doom Eternal game director Hugo Martin, it sounds like the stories in the Doom universe are far from over.
“While this is the end of the story arc that began in Doom (2016), we planted a lot of stakes in the ground with that story. And we’ve been able to flesh out a lot of those things throughout the course of [Doom Eternal] and to do two DLCs.”
“There are more stories to tell with the Doom Slayer, for sure.”
Whether these stories involve the current Doom Slayer or a new one is yet to be seen, but it seems the team is already exploring ideas of where to go next.
“Could we tell a story about when [the Doom Slayer] first came to that place with the Sentinels, almost like a more medieval setting, a fantasy setting? I think as you play the DLC, too, you’ll see lots of hints of what we could do moving forward.
“Maybe even in the future. Again, our hero is somewhat timeless — I mean, literally, he’s immortal. So we could tell all kinds of stories.”
