Sigil 2 Announced! That's the news we bring to the Doom modding community today following a recent interview John Romero had where he revealed he was developing a Doom 2 mod sequel to his Sigil Mod.

Originally announced in December 2018, Sigil is a mod for DOOM made by John Romero, one of the game's creators, in order to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The mod wound up facing several delays until it was finally released on May 31, 2019. Since then, John Romero teased the idea of a sequel to the mod, such as when he joked that the sequel was confirmed when scientists discovered a volcanic planet with oceans of lava. However, last month, during an interview with Bridgeburner, John Romero announced that Sigil 2 is in development. In this interview, the two talked about a variety of topics such as level design, John's work on various franchises, and the making of the original Sigil.

Around the 42-minute mark in the video, Bridgeburner asks John Romero if he has anything coming up in the future. John states that Sigil II is, in fact, going to be a thing. So far he's got a "pretty cool" map made for it and the mod will be for DOOM 2. As for release dates, John doesn't have any specific dates (and jokes that he's already missed the 25th anniversary for DOOM 2,) but he says that "I want to make sure that [the levels] have a really good consistency and progression and are just really challenging."

Sigil 2 has no release date so far, and you'll need DOOM 2 in order to play it when it releases.
