No Xbox Doom 3, Resurrection of Evil until March 2005

The publisher says the console version of and expansion pack for the popular PC shooter aren't coming until next spring, but concedes that id makes the final call.

Though many Xbox owners are likely headed for hell, it doesn't look like they'll get there this year. During an earnings call this afternoon, Activision president Ron Doornink said that his company is now planning to release the Xbox version of Doom 3 in March 2005.

This comes as little surprise, since id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead basically said that the console version of the best-selling PC shooter--which places players in the role of a space marine guarding a research facility that literally opens the gates to hell--isn't coming this year. Although Vicarious Visions is developing the Xbox Doom 3, id is overseeing the process and has final approval.
