id software lead programmer Brian Harris has hinted that Doom 4 is headed to next generation platforms.

Asked on Twitter what he was up to now that Doom 3 BFG is out, Harris said: "Currently home taking care of a new baby girl. When I get back, I'll help port the big project to new platforms."

The questions are: What is the big project? And what are the new platforms? Given id has been working on Doom 4 for years now, this would be a safe bet. As for the platforms, next-gen systems are expected to be announced in the coming months.

According to LinkedIn, Harris was lead programmer on Doom 4 until January 2012, at which point he moved over to Doom 3 BFG. Is he now returning to the sequel?

"Help port the big project to new platforms" - shame they weren't designed for the new platforms to begin with.

Wii U Doom 4? Probably not, but it'd be nice all the same.

Port to new platforms would suggest that lead development is targeting current gen hardware. So, a next-gen port would likely consist of heavier textures, higher numbers of polygons, better shaders and better lighting. But, the same foundation game across platforms.

Where's my Doom 4, dammit?!
