id Software May Be Looking Into Developing a New Entry in the Quake Series

Published

A mysterious job listing by id Software in Germany has suggested that there may be a new Quake title coming at some point.

The job listing, as found by Gamnesia, asks for a Senior Physics Programmer to “…work as part of a development team on legendary id game properties like DOOM and QUAKE, developing physics and simulation technology for the game industry’s most advanced engine technology.”

A NeoGAF topic observes that usually id Software tends towards name-dropping their intellectual properties in the “about us” section rather than at the beginning of a job description. This seems to suggest that work is being done on the two properties.

Such a revisiting to the Quake series, which has been in stasis since 2007’s Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, wouldn’t be surprising considering the critical and commercial acclaim of the reboot of Doom. Although, before the hype-train derails itself and takes out a child, it should be considered that the job title also mentions Doom.

Perhaps with the reboot doing so well, they plan to continue on the Doom momentum before taking a look into Quake? Perhaps Quake will get a reboot? Perhaps it will be a sequel? It could even be a free-to-play title that inspires heavy sighs as it functions like a bizarre mix of Big Rigs Racing, Clive Barker’s Jericho and filling out a tax form.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for the announcement. Just know that something is coming.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
