It's been over a year since we've heard anything on John Romero's MMOG project following the exclusive reveal on these pages, but today new information has come to light.

Romero's new company, Slipgate Ironworks, has selected the BigWorld Technology Suite as the game development platform for the massively multiplayer title.

The BigWorld Technology Suite will allow Slipgate to speed up the production and development process of its MMOG by providing key foundation tech required to produce such games.

Game details are still yet to emerge however, although in 2006 John Romero said we should get our first glimpse of the MMOG this year. At the same time he also described the project as being "very different from any other MMO for some special reasons."
