News: The man behind Doom has parted company with Midway.
John Romero confirmed today via the forums on his official site that he is no longer employed by Midway. Romero had been working on Midway's reworking of the Gauntlet series, Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows for the PC, PS2 and Xbox.
Hey guys, I can definitely confirm that I have left Midway - I've been gone for about 3 weeks and Rhaluka and I have been traveling around and having fun together (a sort of honeymoon without going to tropical destinations).
Midway says that development of Gauntlet hasn't been impacted by my departure and is scheduled to ship this fall. I can't say anything more about the situation and hope you all understand. Smile
I'm currently looking at lots of exciting developments right now and it'll be a couple months before I can announce my next destination.
So I guess that's that. Now, is anyone else seriously disturbed by the avatar that Rhaluka (Romero's Wife) is using? Jesus man, those would even make Jessica Rabbit jealous.
