Id Software fans speculate on what appears to be a new project under development after the discovery of a list by the Australian Classification Council for something called Project 2021B. The game, classified as M for online violence and interactivity, is a cross-platform "computer game" developed by id and to be published by ZeniMax Europe.
If some weird title sounds like it, you might be thinking Project 2021A, another identifying software development discovered in January – also through the Classification Board website – that Bethesda is publishing. There are several differences, however. The 2021A project is rated R18 + for "high-impact violence" and its type of support is virtual reality, such as featured sites TechRadar predict that a Doom Eternal VR game is in development.
2021B, on the other hand, seems to be a conventional video game, and its score is much lower than Doom (the 2016 version) or Doom Eternal, both classified as R18 + for high-impact violence and blood and blood. These are two complete levels higher than the M grade of 2021B. (M and R18 + are separated by the MA15 + rating, which is given to games with "strong violence").
There may be a direct connection between the two projects: the first could be a completely standalone Doom VR game that is not related to Eternal and the second a non-VR version of it. Some Resetera users assume it has nothing to do with Doom, but in fact it is a remastering or a collection of Quake for next generation consoles. After all, the 25th anniversary of Quake 2 will come next year.
Whatever happens, Bethesda remains a mother for now: a representative of the study declined to comment on the rating. We'll let you know if we know more.
