If a video game rating is any indication, it looks like Doom 64 will soon be available on at least the PC and PS4, if not the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One as well.
While Bethesda made a flurry of announcements at this year’s QuakeCon – including news that Doom, Doom 2, and Doom 3 are out now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and revealing new details for Doom Eternal – it didn’t announce Doom 64.
But Japanese video game website Gematsu noticed a PEGI rating listing for the game on PC and PS4. PEGI is the European equivalent of the ESRB video game rating system. They posted the listing on Twitter before the page was taken down.
PEGI has rated DOOM 64 for PS4 and PC. This was in addition to ratings of DOOM (1993) and DOOM II (Classic). There's no DOOM 3 rating. pic.twitter.com/5CtEBtV61X— Gematsu (@gematsucom) July 26, 2019
Doom 64 was first released as an exclusive on the Nintendo 64. The now-defunct Midway Games developed and published the game with supervision from id Software. It was originally scheduled to be a launch title, but it was pushed back until 1997 to allow for improvements. Despite the delay, it still only managed to receive mixed reviews.
It’s possible, of course, that the listing is simply an error, but they are usually pretty reliable indications of unannounced titles. And given that Nintendo wasn’t the publisher, the licensing rights should allow it to be re-released as a multi-platform title.
