Fans of the Doom franchise should keep their eyes peeled for Friday and what it could bring for the franchise.
Doom saw a franchise rebirth in 2016 with a reboot that was well received by fans and critics alike and even saw a release on the Nintendo Switch in late 2017.
No release date has been announced, but we may hear more by the end of the week.
