John Romero Heading Into The Massively Multiplayer
02.02.06 - 3:37 AM

John Romero has confirmed on his personal blog, rome.ro that he is heading into the massively multiplayer realm. Romero, most known for co-founding id Software and helping create titles like Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, is certainly a famous figure in American gaming - or infamous to some. Those some being almost every PC gamer who purchased Daikatana, which was lambasted by critics and gamers alike.

Romero is quoted as saying, "Many people already knew I was making an MMO for about the past 4-5 months but evidently there are a lot more who didn't know as evidenced by the news blurbs that blasted out today after PC ZONE magazine announced it online."

"And the torrent of diarrhea from people's posts on the net about it confirms just how out-of-date most people's knowledge of my history is after the id or Ion era. Bunch of L4/\/\3R5!!11one," he continued.

Romero most recently worked on Midway's Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows
