New job postings on the official ZeniMax Jobs site have revealed that id Software is working on a “long-running iconic action FPS.” The postings don’t provide any additional clues as to what this game might be, but the description would highly suggest that it must be a DOOM or Quake title. id Software’s most recent project was DOOM Eternal, the sequel to 2016’s acclaimed DOOM reboot.
From the Senior Technical Animator posting:
id Software, part of the ZeniMax Media Inc. family of companies, is seeking a Senior Technical Animator/ Character TD to join our team in our Richardson, TX studio (near Dallas) in the development of a long-running iconic action FPS. This position will be responsible for the implementation of AAA quality animation rigs with a focus on Havok cloth and hair implementation. Working in coordination with the Concept, Modeling and Animations teams, applicants will be tasked with creating hair and cloth rigs to be used in both gameplay and cinematics. Candidates should be self-motivating and demonstrate strong technical, design, organizational and scripting skills.
A sequel to DOOM Eternal seems inevitable, but a new Quake title with a single-player component would arguably be more exciting. That’s because the last Quake title to feature a campaign mode with an emphasis on story is Quake 4, which Raven Software released over 15 years ago.
