Update: Looks as though Romero wasn't told the full story: it hasn't been canned after all.

Id Software’s brash co-founder, John Romero, has, surprisingly, flown under the radar for the past couple of years. Sadly, his zipped lips can’t be attributed to his unflinching focus on Severity’s multiplayer FPS madness, because, well, he never worked on it.

“Yeah... the game was cancelled a while ago,” Romero told ThatGamingSite. "I’m never going to announce a game that I’m not actually working on again. Sorry!”

And that’s all he wrote. We can only hope that he’ll drop by Gizmondo next.
