Romero revealed the news when he was fielding questions from fans on Twitter. Maybe we will hear more about this intriguing title, and the platforms it’s being developed for, at this year E3 event in June?

    1. You can trust anyone after Daikatana. It’s called forgiving. It’s also called “fifteen year old failure of a game”. Let’s move on.

  1. I might be interested if he puts it on Wii U. I have a feeling the Wii U will be my most played system of the next console generation.

  2. Because Duke Nukem Forever worked out so well lol I love an old school FPS as much as the next guy but I say leave it in the past. Old school mechanics with a modern game just doesn’t work well…

  3. Let’s just hope it’s not a new Daikatana. That game was supposed to be great, but didn’t turn out good at all.
    But then again, he should have learned from the past, and not make that mistake again :)

  4. What you would need to guarantee a success of such a franchise
    A Wii U only release (retail or download, both are good,) to ensure this game gets to the gamers that remember the original DOOM, and that they don’t pass on it because it’s “just another multiplat-cash-in”
    Fast pacing,
    Arcade-style pick-up and playability,
    And don’t be afraid of the word “BONUS”. In fact, sprinkle bonuses liberally around your game.
