We're big fans of the 2021 Quake remaster here at Pure Xbox, so we're very excited to learn that a sequel entitled Quake 2 Remastered appears to be in the works, which will presumably arrive on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

The game has been rated in South Korea (as discovered by Gematsu), and the outlet speculates that a release date could be announced later this year at QuakeCon, which takes place from August 10th to 13th.

Quake 2 was first released back in 1997, and eventually made its way to Xbox 360 as part of the Quake 4 disc in 2005, where it was included as a direct port with some visual and multiplayer improvements. We're expecting a much bigger overhaul for the upcoming remaster, which should prove another great addition to 2023's Xbox Game Pass lineup.

"Developed by id Software in 1997, Quake II is a critically acclaimed first-person shooter and sequel to Quake that deviates from the original by introducing an entirely new science fiction narrative and setting.

Mankind is at war with the Strogg, a hostile alien race planning an invasion of Earth. In response, we launched a preemptive failed. Outnumbered and outgunned, you must fight to shut down the enemy's war machine. Only then will the fate of humanity be known."
