“We’re working with a major publisher”
- by Liam Doolan
The absolutely legendary game designer and programmer John Romero has announced he’s working with a major publisher on an “all-new” first-person shooter and is now hiring.
In an announcement on social media, John shared the following message on behalf of Romero Games – calling for talented people to join the team:
“It’s a new dawn for Romero Games. We’re working with a major publisher to develop John Romero’s next shooter: an all-new FPS with an original, new IP. Out team is expanding, and we’re looking for talented people for all positions and at all experience levels, particularly those with Unreal Engine 5 experience.”
John Romero was one of the co-founders of id Software in the ’90s – paving the way for the first-person shooter genre and coining the term deathmatch. Apart from Doom, he also worked on series such as Wolfenstein, Hexen and Quake.
He founded his new studio with his wife in 2015 which most recently released the strategy RPG Empire of Sin on Switch and multiple other platforms. The classic games he worked like Doom and Quake are also available via the Switch eShop.
