Following a bit of a ratings board leak earlier this year, a new report has claimed a Quake 2 remaster will – in a move that wouldn’t exactly be surprising – be getting an official unveiling during this year’s QuakeCon festivities, which take place next week.
A Quake 2 remaster first reared in head in June this year, when a listing appeared on the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea’s website. And now, reliable leaker billbil-kun has piped up (thanks VGC) with some fresh information, claiming both an imminent QuakeCon unveiling and a release for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch.
As astute readers may have already spotted, those are the very same platforms that received a Nightdive-Studios-developed 25th anniversary remaster of the original Quake back in 2021. Billbil-kun says the remaster of its sequel will simply be referred to as Quake 2, ditching the ‘Remastered’ suffix that appeared in the South Korean ratings board listing.
