Despite heralding in a new era of first-person shooters, the Quake franchise has been dead for quite some time. Quake Champions turned out to be a damp squib and is still in early access, even though it has been around for nearly four years. While we got an RTX-enabled version of Quake 2, it only included the first three levels. However, there could still be hope for Quake fans worldwide, as Id Software is reportedly planning to launch a remastered version of Quake.
The information comes from well-renowned industry insider Shpeshal Nick, who claims that the new version of Quake will include both single and multiplayer elements. Id Software could get some help from Machine Games of the Wolfenstein: The New Order fame, too. In 2016, Machine games launched Quake: Dimensions of the Past on the franchise's 20th anniversary, so we can rest easy knowing that the game is in good hands. Lastly, Shpeshal Nick adds that the upcoming Quake game could feature a female protagonist.
However, it is unclear as to which iteration of the game will get an overhaul. It would be ideal if Id Software bundled all four Quake games together, similar to what EA did with Mass Effect Legendary Edition. EA is rumoured to resurrect its long-dead Dead Space franchise soon. Id Software may follow suit and bring back one of the most revered titles in video game history.
