John Romero, the creator of Doom, is working on a new FPS game. Through Twitter, the Id Software co-founder and one of the directors of Wolfenstein 3D and Quake has revealed a new project. The game will be developed by Romero Games, which previously worked on Empire of Sin, a mafia strategy game.

The development of the unnamed game is in its early stages, and Romero has issued a tweet confirming several job postings for the game. As mentioned previously, the game will run on Epics Unreal Engine 5. You are welcome to join our studio and our team, according to the official website.

Except for the mention of a multiplayer component and support for widescreen displays, there is no confirmation of platforms, launch dates, or publishers at this stage. Meanwhile, Romero is working on Sigil 2, an unofficial mod for that adds nine new closed corridors and shooter levels to Doom in a small standalone application.

Romero Games was founded in 2015 by co-founder Romero and his wife Brenda, who made their debut with Gunman Taco Truck, a pixelated, side-scrolling roguelike game set in a post-apocalyptic world. They later followed up with Sigil, a free expansion component for the Bethesdas 2019 remake of the original Doom game.

Although Romero Games' offices are located in Galway, Ireland, the job posting also mentions remote and hybrid work models tailored to the employees' comfort. Most open positions are for senior roles for early conceptualization, so it may be a year or two before we hear of any promising improvements.
