Interception is a vanilla-compatible 32-level megawad for Doom II released in 2013. The project started as two maps by Matthew D. (Matt534Dog) intended to be submitted to TNT 2: Devilution, though this submission never happened. Work began on creating a megawad following the rejection of maps by Matt534Dog submitted to Doom the Way id Did (which later became E4M7 and E6M4 of Doom the Way id Did: The Lost Episodes). He was soon joined by numerous mappers, including Callum Guy Oliver (phobosdeimos1), who passed away before the WAD was released. Interception also features a completely new soundtrack, composed by XenoNemisis and Stuart Rynn (stewboy).

Interception was uploaded to the idgames archive on January 16, 2013. It was named as a runner up at the 20th Annual Cacowards. In 2020 and 2021 several releases were made to fix map bugs, replace the three demos, and return MAP15 to its original form. A sequel, titled Interception II, was started and, after a long pause in development, eventually released in August 2020.

Most of the soundtrack was created by XenoNemisis, with stewboy contributing only the songs for maps 09, 14/23, 16, and 28/31.
