Romero 'sorry' for initial reaction to Zenimax deal

Ranty game developer and former id prodigy John Romero has apologized for yesterday's Twitter-based outburst upon hearing that Zenimax had bought the Doom developer. Fresh off a podcast interview that's due out on Friday, Romero admitted he was harsh and has apologized for stating that the Zenimax deal was "disgusting."

"I just did an interview for Avault Podcast coming out friday," Tweets Romero. " I am positive about the Zenimax deal. My initial reaction was harsh. Sorry."

Quite why Romero blew up the way he did, I don't know, but maybe his upcoming interview will reveal all. Either way, he's now sorry, so hopefully everybody can be friends again. That is, until Doom 5 gets a VATS System.
