"There will be no Daikatana 2!"

Look, a young John Romero! And who's that next to him?

Has John Romero - the abundantly-haired creator of games Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein - given up on making an old-school FPS?

"Definitely not!" retorted John Romero on Twitter. "I have plans..."

But those do not include Daikatana 2. As Romero succinctly put it: "There will be no DK2!"

Romero's best known for co-founding id Software and designing Doom and Quake and Wolfenstein. Romero also co-founded Ion Storm, where he worked on delayed and underwhelming FPS Daikatana.

Today, John Romero has a new company - Loot Drop (formed 2010). Romero and team specialise in mobile and social games.

Doom 2 on XBLA.
