Doom: Annihilation is in development by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. It is unrelated to the original film, and is a reboot.[1] Originally intended to be released on May 17, 2019, it was delayed to Fall 2019 due to the filming crews' decision to spend more time working on the CGI effects for the Hell landscape.

The movie will be produced by Universal 1440 Entertainment; this branch of Universal Pictures deals exclusively with direct-to-DVD movies.[2]

Development

Rumors of a 3D Doom film existed a few years prior to 2018. This year, it was revealed (if not outright announced) that the film was in development.[1]

The director, Tony Giglio, confirms that some monsters (such as Spider Mastermind[3] and Baron of Hell[4]) will not make an appearance in the reboot, while hinting a possible sequel to the reboot for the said monsters' comeback.

On March 11, 2019, id Software's official Doom social media account expressed its distance from the project, stating they are "not involved with the movie". This came as a response to the mostly negative fan feedback following the trailer release.

BUT... i felt it deviated too far the game & didn't feel like a real adaptation. But it's fun." - Tony Giglio, Twitter
