John Romero, co-creator of Doom, has revealed that he's working on a brand new FPS using Unreal Engine 5.

Yesterday, Doom co-creator John Romero announced that his studio, Romero Games, is hiring for a brand new FPS game. Romero posted the call onto his Twitter page, which read, "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."

"Our 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.”

Heading to the Romero Games career page reveals a number of open positions across code, design, and art. While the listings don't quite reveal what the upcoming game is set to be about, or even so much as a name, they do reveal some of the features that could be implemented. Jobs such as Lead Level Designer and Senior Multiplayer Programmer hint that the game could feature multiplayer and numerous levels.

Romero himself was one of the programmers and designers behind some of gaming s most influential FPS games, including Quake and Wolfenstein 3D.

Romero Games, founded in 2015, have put out a number of games since its establishment, such as SIGIL and Empire of Sin. Romero is currently working on SIGIL 2.
