John Romero has announced his team Romero Games is working on an FPS based on a new IP utilising Unreal Engine 5. It's for a "major" publisher, but that's all the information the studio has decided to share. Founded over six years ago, the team's biggest title to date is the strategy game Empire of Sin.
On the developer's official website, it's explained: "We can confirm that it’s new, that it’s a shooter and that we’re making it with a major publisher. Otherwise, it’s way too early to share any other information on it. We’re grateful for your interest, though." Due to the secrecy and advertised hiring efforts, we wouldn't expect to hear from this project for many years. This appears to be another "come work for us!" posting that has become a trend in the industry as of late.
Still, it appears Romero Games is looking forward to returning to the genre that "built our careers". Are you a fan of Romero Games off the back of Empire of Sin? Let us know in the comments below.
Am I going to be his b**ch again?
Hmmm. "Major publisher" - Bethesda? Please, no 😂
Ah, thanks for the reminder of Empire of Sin being my biggest disappointment the year when it came out despite it being my most wanted game at the time.
New IP hmm possibly KaiDatana?
Probably EA. If it was a publisher people liked, they'd say who it is.
I had a lot of fun with Empire of Sin recently, as i completed it on game pass. it was rough round the edges but pretty addictive...although i heard its launch condition was pretty terrible, its current state works just fine.
Romero worked on Doom, arguably my all time favorite game. However and I mean no disrespect as he is talented and seems like a really nice and cool dude who admits to his past flaws, he just doesn't have the magic touch he used to. I would love to be proven wrong though.
Hopefully not another Daikatana. The guy is a legend so fingers crossed he gets it right this time.
I expect Ubisoft, with an open-world DaiKatana-like experience full to the brim with useless collectables and lighthouses/peaks to reach
Please don't fail us again Romero, I heard Empire of Sin tanked badly at launch.
