“I haven’t made a shooter since 2000. So I’m basically starting to work on another one,” said Romero.
According to Joystiq, people (predictably) went nuts at the thought of Romero working on a shooter again. After all, he’s one of the pioneers of the entire first-person shooter genre. He’s a household name in an industry that has very few household names.
However, we should maybe keep in mind that prior to this fourteen-year break, Romero’s last shooter was the infamous Daikatana, which, after years of hype, was released to middling-to-vicious reviews and is considered one of the game industry’s largest commercial failures.
Then again, the last Unreal Tournament was hot garbage also, so if I can get excited about a new Unreal Tournament I can probably find it in my heart to get excited about a new Romero game.
