John Romero and Adrian Carmack tease a new FPS, John Carmack honoured

John Romero and Adrian Carmack are back together in order to create a new first-person shooter game! They had already worked together at id Sofware on games like Doom, Quake and obviously Wolfenstein 3-D, and have always kept in touch since. But Adrian left id in 2005, and sued the company in court afterwards for some forced stakes sales. He retired from the video game industry, and became the manager of an hotel in Ireland.

And in 2015, John Romero moved to Ireland in order to found his new company – Night Work Games – with his wife Brenda Romero and apparently Adrian, and create a new FPS – his first one since Quake in 1996, before he left id Software, and Daïkatana in 2000. John and Adrian have just posted a video teasing this new game – which will be officially announced next Monday!

 

John Carmack won’t be part of the project. He’s still working as the CTO of Oculus on their virtual-reality headsets, and received recently a BAFTA Fellowship award for his “outstanding and exceptional contribution to video games”. Here’s his brilliant acceptance speech (transcript here):
