The Doom (2016) cover art was first revealed from a post from Conan O'Brien's Twitter account 'TeamCoco' on February 3, 2016, promoting the game to be featured in his next episode of the Clueless Gamer segment of his show. The art has seen near universal negative reception from many gaming review sites and blogs, including Polygon[1], Destructoid[2], and Gawker Media's gaming blog Kotaku[3].
It was later confirmed as the official box art by Bethesda Softworks PR manager Pete Hines.[6]

On February 5, 2016, a poster in that thread named shagg_187 created six iterations of the altered cover art featuring the logotypes of modern first-person shooters, including Halo 5: Guardians, Crysis, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and others[5]. Many others in the thread followed suit, and it eventually accumulated 848 replies as of February 10th, 2016.
