    Default ZeniMax shuts down fan remake of Doom

    Bethesda parent ZeniMax Media has demanded the shutdown of a fan's modern remake of the original Doom.
    ModDB user Vasyan777 was rebuilding the classic FPS with more modern technology and graphics under the title Doom Remake 4, but has recently scrapped the project after receiving a legal warning from the publisher.
    In the letter shared online, the company says: "Notwithstanding your affection and enthusiasm for the Doom franchise and the original Doom game, we must object to any unlicensed use of ZeniMax Media Inc property."
    It warns that Vasyan's use of the Doom IP on their website and social media pages age "without our authorization and is infringing."
    Vasyan was given until June 20 to remove all ZeniMax-owned IP from their online pages, stop development of the Doom remake and "destroy all code and materials related to that project", and confirm in writing that they "will not use any ZeniMax Media intellectual property in the development of any future videogames."
    Vasyan appears to have complied as the page where it was hosted has been cleared, and even their account has been deleted.

    Damn shame, I'd have loved to see it. Been getting the old Doom buzz recently, especially as I've acquired a few old 1990s laptops and running the MS-DOS version of the the original doom has been fun. Hope it reappears quietly elsewhere...
