John Romero, one of the creators of the equally classic and popular shooter series Doom, has announced that he is working on a new game while he is looking for a developer. Romero’s studio went public with the job search on Twitter, and our thinking was that it would be a return to what made him famous. This is a first-person action game in a brand new series. Since he hasn’t created a game of this type in years (the last game Romero Games made was Empire of Sin), many fans of his previous work seemed very excited on social media.
At Gamereactor, we find it exciting to see how well-known developers navigate the modern gaming world. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen some missteps, like when Julian Gollop (X-Com and creator of a genre) failed to convince the game world with the same genre of Phoenix Point he helped create.
