QuakeCon 2021 schedule briefly mentioned a ‘revitalized’ Quake

Bethesda released the full schedule for QuakeCon 2021 earlier today, ahead of its August 19 launch. It’s an all-digital affair, with a nice mix of live streams focused on Doom, Deathloop, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls Online, and yeah: Quake.

Actually, it’s probably going to be an interesting one for Quake because a now-amended listing for the ‘Let’s Talk Quake’ event on a Saturday morning referenced a forthcoming ‘revitalized’ version of the 1996 shooter.

Here’s the event listing’s original description, via Wayback Machine:

“Quake is back; in this special stream, John Linneman from Digital Foundry talks to Jerk Gustafsson of Machine Games about the title’s iconic legacy and what it meant to both of them. The pair will also discuss the additional content Machine Games have contributed to this revitalized edition.”

To me, at least, “revitalized” doesn’t imply “remake,” so this might end up being a lightly expanded reissue, probably focused on consoles. Bethesda re-released Doom and its sequel in 2019 for consoles, adding many fanmade map packs and some minor performance improvements over previous ports.

I could be wrong: MachineGames being involved may point to something bigger than Doom’s recent treatment, but it could also just mean that the reissue will include MachineGames’ 20th-anniversary Quake episode. The Wolfenstein: New Order studio released that episode back in 2016 as a lovely birthday tribute, and you can still download it here if you want.

Suppose the removed listing is accurate and not just an extremely weird typo. In that case, there’s every chance we’ll get the announcement on Thursday. At 2pm EDT, there’s a 25th-anniversary Quake Livestream co-hosted by id Software and MachineGames.
