id Software’s Quake is seemingly making a comeback. It’s recently been rated for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). This further fuels reports that a remastered version of the first game will be revealed at QuakeCon 2021.
The digital expo begins tonight and will have a special panel at 2:05 PM ET where id Software and MachineGames celebrate the 25th anniversary of Quake. The official schedule previously described a “revitalized edition” with Digital Foundry’s John Linneman speaking to MachineGames’ Jerk Gustafsson about the classic. Along with discussing the title’s legacy, the latter would also provide details on new content included in this updated version.
Plenty of other Bethesda-published titles will be present at QuakeCon 2021 including Deathloop which will have a Deep Dive at 2:30 PM ET (along with a “special discussion” for multiplayer). Fallout 76 is on at 3 PM ET with the development team providing more information on Fallout Worlds while id Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin will provide a studio update for DOOM Eternal at 4:30 PM ET.
