DOOM 3 has GONE GOLD! (PC)id Software announces its eagerly anticipated DOOM 3 has gone gold and will arrive in stores as early as August 3rd!By Rainier Van Autrijve | July 14, 2004Advertisementid Software CEO Todd Hollenshead announced today that its eagerly anticipated action/horror title DOOM 3 has finally "gone gold," meaning that it's been signed off as complete and sent off for duplication, with an "official" in-store date of August 5 (although some stores may have it sooner). From Hollenshead's .plan file:IT'S DONE!!!!!!!Yes, this is the official word that DOOM 3 has been code released and has been approved for manufacturing! It won't be long now until the anticipation ends and the PH34R begins ;-) We literally just hung up with Activision and have confirmed that our latest release candidate has been mutually approved and is finally GOLD. Thanks to everyone for their patience (yeah right! =) and for everyone at id, Activision and our numerous partners for helping us create what I believe is absolutely the best game we have ever made.So, the next question is release dates. Retailers in the States will be allowed to pick up games starting at 12:01 AM on August 3rd. The official street date is actually August 5th in the U.S.A., but some of your favorite stores will probably have it early for those of you who have to have it first. Check with your local retailer for that information.Internationally, the game will take a few more days to make it to the store shelves. The UK will probably get it first, on or about August 6th. Everywhere else will probably be Friday, August 13th (que Twilight Zone Theme) or close to that date, with just a few exceptions (e.g. Russia and Poland). This isn't because we don't have love for you folks outside the U.S., but the localization and manufacturing process takes a bit longer outside the U.S. where we will have JVC run 24/7 to get the units built. I guess the European manufacturers prefer to give their employees nights and weekends off. Go figure!The champagne is flowing here at id and smiles abound!I'll update again with some DOOM 3 preparation tips (not what hardware to buy - you'll have to wait for a programmer for that sort of thing). In the meantime, I want to see those "DOOM 3 GOLD!!!" threads set new records for swamping message board servers, destroying productivity, and post counts ;-)Recapping today's headlines....DOOM 3 GOLD!!!http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/doom-3/530239p1.html
