Is Quake getting a reboot?

While recently a revival for the Quake series was teased in the QuakeCon, a mysterious ESRB rating emerged, rating an unknown version of the Quake game.

The listing stated that the new Quake project would soon be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

There is no information about the nature of the game, but what fans have speculated so far hints towards a possible reboot or remaster of the game. The Official QuakeCon schedule teased about the same while talking about a “revitalized edition” from the developers, Machine Games.

In the event “Let’s Talk About Quake,” a possible new version of the game was teased in a now-removed description which read:

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

While again much information about the game and its rating is unknown, a vague description as reported by NME read:

“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier that travels through time to stop an evil force from destroying humanity,

“Players traverse through maze-like medieval environments and use shotguns, nail guns, and grenade launchers to kill various enemies (e.g., zombies, demonic forces, scorpions, humans) in frenetic run-and-gun combat,

“Battles are accompanied by gunfire sounds, screams of pain, and large explosions. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and several attacks cause enemies to explode into bloody chunks. Some areas depict mutilated body parts on the ground or falling from ceilings.”
