Doom Co-Creator John Romero is Working on a New First-Person Shooter

Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein are one of the most popular shooters out there. One of the leading minds behind these games was John Romero, who only a couple of years ago opened his own studio called Romero Games.

The legendary creator has just announced that he is currently working on a new first person shooter that is unlike anything we have seen so far. Now, if it was someone other than Romero making such a statement, I wouldn’t filed this under marketing hype and talk, however, this man has a history with great FPS games.

I don’t want to talk about it because it’s a really cool idea, it’s a unique idea. I’ve never seen a game like it.

I’m really excited to start making it because it’s just a great idea. Instead of just pumping out game after game after game, it’s like waiting to come up with something that’s really unique, that no-one’s seen before, and enables you to make something that you hope will be really amazing. So, we’ll see. It’s got a pretty cool fiction around it. It’s got an interesting story

His partner Brenda added:

I really like what he’s doing. There’s maybe 10 people that know what it is. It’s exciting. There’s some really cool stuff he will announce.

They are playing coy for the time being, so I guess we’ll have to be patient and wait for more details. What are your expectations from John Romero’s new FPS? Do you think he can do something unique in the stalest of genres?
