With huge events such as Gamescom coming up, Quakecon has quietly crept upon us. There are tons of panels looking at iconic series' such as Elder Scrolls and Fallout, but one that's sparked attention is a Quake presentation, which appears to be revealing some kind of upgrade in the form of a "revitalized edition".
As spotted by XboxEra, a since deleted page on the Quakecon site shared some details on a Let's Talk Quake panel. While it seems to be a standard chat about the series at first glance, it also claims the show will look at "additional content Machine Games have contributed to this revitalized edition".
“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.”
It's worth noting Machine Games is now an Xbox first-party studio after the acquisition of Zenimax Media. If there is a revitalised edition on the way, it could potentially be an Xbox console exclusive (unless it's PC only), but with the huge legacy the game holds, we wouldn't be all too surprised if it was a multi-platform release.
If you want to be one of the first to see whether this is true, you can tune into Quakecon via Bethesda's Twitch channel beginning Friday, August 20 at 10:30am ET / 3:30pm BST / 4:30pm CEST.
