Microsoft may be preparing quite a treat for us. According to information provided by renowned industry insider Tom Henderson, a new game in the Doom series is to be revealed during the June Xbox Games Showcase.

Henderson reports that the upcoming FPS from the studio Id Software, previously known as "Year Zero" (as per Microsoft documents), will be titled Doom: The Dark Ages. According to the journalist's sources, the game has been in development for four years.
