Looks like John Romero’s working on an “exciting IP” using Unreal Engine 3, according to his Twitter feed.

Here’s the tweet:

I’m looking for Unreal 3 experienced coders. Lead, server & client engineers. Send your resumes to john [at] Exciting IP involved.

Could this be the untitled MMORPG at Slipgate Ironworks/Gazillion Entertainment he’s been working on since 2005, or something newentirely?

We have no idea, but we’ll ask.

Gazillion Entertainment hired former Microsoft general manager of PC games Stuart Moulder as its new Vice President of Studios back in May last year.

The firm also saw some layoffs last year, in order to “focus on reaching the widest possible audiences with breakthrough MMO entertainment” with a smaller team.

Thanks, Anders.
