John Romero’s Doom Megawad Sigil Delayed to April

The upcoming Doom megawad Sigil has been delayed for an April release.

John Romero gave an update via a blog post:

“I just wanted to update you on SIGIL. There were a few snags in production trying to make sure everything is top-notch for fans! I just wanted to let everyone who purchased either the Big Box or the Beast Box know that it is now looking like it will ship sometime in April. Thank you for your patience, and I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. This also means the free version of SIGIL will have to wait until after the boxes are in the hands of customers.”

For those who missed our prior coverage (or have no idea what that first sentence meant), a megawad is a fan-made patch for the original 1990s Doom. Essentially a form of fan-mod.

Sigil is being created by John Romero, one of the original four designers of the first and many other Doom titles. He dubbed Sigil the “unofficial spiritual successor to The Ultimate Doom’s fourth episode.”

Once again, Sigil launches in April 2019 for Windows PC.
