Earlier today the schedule for Quakecon 2021 went up, with a surprising bit of spoiler-y news to be found if one clicked into the calendar event for Friday’s “Let’s talk Quake” event. John Linneman of Digital foundry will be talking with Jerk Gustaffson of Machine games about a “revitalized edition” of the game Quake. Which appears to be a co-production between iD and Machine Games.
The page was quickly scrubbed of this information and visiting it now gives you only a “…” as the description of the event.
Machine Games will be on stage with iD the day before as well at the opening event to celebrate the history of the franchise.
This all goes to confirm the rumors that our very own Nick Baker had been reporting on over the previous months.
