Doom designer John Romero is announcing his next game tomorrow, which also just so happens to be Doom's 25th anniversary.

In a brief email to fans - a copy of which as been uploaded to Imgur (thanks, PC Gamer) - Romero, who was one of id Software's co-founders, is giving nothing away other than an invitation to pre-order and the Doom logo. But it's the teaser text - "prepare to 5" - and the correlation to Doom's 25th anniversary that's got fans hoping it just might be Doom 5.


"25 years ago Doom was released on December 10th," the image says.

"To celebrate this momentous occasion, Romero Games will announce pre-orders for a project John just completed.

"If you have been following John Romero's Instagram you would have seen the hints. What looked like a countdown to Doom's birthday became suddenly mysterious.

"You'll receive another email on Monday announcing this new project, and have the opportunity to pre-order it."

Aaand... that's it. The email tells us nothing else. Just as well as haven't got too long to wait, eh?
