My guess is it's another Loot Drop mobile game based on a SE IP - a deal similar to the Ghost Recon project they were working on with Ubi that got shitcanned.

I remember years ago in an interview in PC Gamer or CGW he said something like he wanted to make a game as emotionally powerful as FF6, then he said the opera scene in FF6 made him cry.

I it didn't make me cry, but it definitely left a impression on me. I think it was the first time a game (especially in that era) could come across like that. I was ~13 at the time though.

He and Romero made characters for a Gauntlet revival (a dragoon and an "actress," I guess like a Final Fantasy mime,) then Midway shit the bed and everything they came up with got cut from the final game. Damn shame, since I had followed previews of that game back then and liked what little of Gauntlet Legends I played on the PS2, and was waiting for it

I remember people cheering on Mike Wilson as some kind of hero for that troll-mail shown in the video, even though his marketing team draining the budget is part of the reason Ion Storm fell apart

If they hired him to UN-bitch things now THAT would be special.

SE are always talking about how profitable their social/browser games are and John Romero works at a company that makes social/browser games. Is there any doubt what kind of game this is?
