After a tweet from actress Nina Bergman surfaced in which she mentioned signing onto a new Doom movie project with Universal, with filming slated to take place in Bulgaria, a spokesperson for NBC/Universal confirmed to Variety that a project is underway at Universal 1440 Entertainment, the company's direct distribution division.[20180421 1] This has led to speculation that the film will eschew the theater and be targeted at a direct-to-video or digital streaming release.

Rumors of activity at id Software have intensified as Bethesda Softworks' Vice President of Marketing Pete Hines used the phrase "hell on Earth" to describe the company's preparation process for E3 in an interview with Dual Shockers. This statement, an echo of one made by then-CEO Todd Hollenshead after the announcement of the original canceled Doom 4 project, feeds speculation of an upcoming new entry in the Doom series as a follow up to the wildly successful release of Doom (2016) almost two years ago. Bethesda is scheduled to deliver its annual BE3 presentation on June 10, 2018, at 6:30pm PDT.[20180414 1]
