    Following a rating board leak earlier this year, a fresh story claims that a Quake 2 remake will be officially unveiled during this year’s QuakeCon festivities, which take place next week. A Quake 2 remaster originally appeared on the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea’s website in June of this year.

    And now, dependable leaker Billbil-kun has chimed in with some new details, suggesting an impending QuakeCon reveal as well as a release for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch. As astute readers may have noticed, those are the same platforms that received a Nightdive-Studios-created 25th anniversary remaster of the original Quake in 2021.

    Billbil-kun has stated that the sequels remaster will simply be known as Quake 2, removing the ‘Remastered’ suffix that appears on the South Korean rating board listing.

    Those interested in learning more should put QuakeCon 2023 on their calendars if they haven’t already. This year’s event, which will be its first in-person show in three years thanks to COVID, will take place next Thursday, August 10th, through Sunday, August 13th.

    Of course, this isn’t the first time Quake 2 has been updated; Nvidia, for example, produced a version of the 1997 FPS classic with hardware-accelerated raytracing in 2019. Alex Battaglia of Digital Foundry was impressed with the update at the time.

    This Quake 2 remaster might be viewed as a means to revitalize the series. Fans of id Software have long suspected that the Texan developer is working on a new entry in the venerable arena shooter franchise. DOOM Eternal was released three years ago, so an announcement may not be far distant.
