"I can’t answer for the team, but I personally could only second what Jerk wrote earlier, Quake would be a killer IP to be part of," added Axel Torvenius, art director at MachineGames.

Please bethesda and please id software. donot let these fools to touch quake. Quake is like Doom. old school fast paced FPS with no cinematics and machinegames emphasize more and more of cutscenes and cinematics.

Id software should do Quake 1 reboot after they done with Doom Eternal.

I do love the machine gun games version of Wolfenstein, even though they are missing a lot of the occult stuff. However they shouldn't do quake unless Id couldn't do it for a very good reason. I agree with TC it should be done by ID but if id can't, I'm glad machine gun games are doing it and not someone else completely.

Quake 1 was already remade as Deathmatch Classic. It sucked.

Can't mess with the Quake 1 audio/SFX. They're perfection.

I think gaming has moved well beyond these sci-fi run n’ gun shooters. Realism wasn’t possible back then so we went to the unknown, but I think we’re more than served with more realistic videogames of today.

I would like to see Machine games make a new F.E.A.R. game I know they don't own the IP but Monolith don't make FPS anymore and WB would fill it with microstransactions.

@ghosts4ever: Hell no. Keep your machine games away from any of the old franchises. And I don't want "woke" Quake. Let ID do it. They are doing right by Doom and keeping it real. Also it's IDs baby. What would be cool is getting Carmack, Ramero, American McGee and the rest of the crew to reunite and make a remake or hell a new Quake game.

OMFG Would love this. The Wolfenstein reboots are some of the best singleplayer FPS games this decade. Would love a story-driven Quake game. Quake IV is a guilty pleasure of mine; love that game, especially when you get "Stroggified"

With all that said, I would rather Quake get the DOOM 2016 treatment by iD than the Wolfenstein treatment from Machine Games. But honestly, either option would be great.

It appears that id software only cares about Doom.

they are creator of all 3, Doom, Quake and wolfenstein. they outsourced wolfenstein first to grey matter who did amazing job with RTCW then raven who made mediocre one and then finally machinegames who create worst possible FPS ever.

After Quake 3 they gave Quake to raven software who made boring corridor shooter and now machinegames might pick it up.

dont know why. but Doom is only series they actually care.

Lol give it a rest Ghosts, you're like a broken record... which is stuck playing the same annoying tune.

Wolfenstein 2 scored higher than Doom, and MachineGames is as good of a developer (if not better) than id. But hey, you keep trying ok :)

Steam disagree.

and Quake is like Doom brother. cinematic approach may work for wolfenstein but it will kill Quake.

Mehh machinegames makes great FPS with deep story in them, as far as I remember( was an unreal fan growing up) quake didn’t even tried to pretend ( like doom did) to have a story?? And pretty sure the time for arena MP games is over...

Why not give them Hexen to reboot, that would be more up their alley imo.

metacritic has professional reviewers who are paid.

look at user review difference between wolf 2 and Doom. Wolf 2 is among the worst FPS i have ever ever played.

and id software in the end also outsource Rage to avalanche. it make sense because rage was not receiving much. although id version of Rage 2 was in development after Rage 1 but it was cancelled so they can focus on Doom Reboot

Boooo! I'd love a RAGE 2 from id software. Lazy bastards, they can only work on 1 game? For several years? Hire more people?

better work on one excellent game than work on bunch of average games at times.

beside it was critical situation of id software. thier first Rage flopped, thier Doom 4 cancelled. so they cancelled Rage 2 and Doom 4 and thus focus on Doom reboot which finally turn out great.

Avalanche Rage 2 happen because avalanche worked on mad max game which is similar. plus Rage is always tim willits dream and i think he is only one in id software who cares about Rage IP. no one in id software care about it.

although after Doom reboot. Rage 2 by id software having serious tone, run on id tech 6 would be great. but unfortunately Doom Eternal would take a back seat and will release even 4 years later.

Doom ip is far more important than Rage ip. so Rage 2 like i said a game to hold us till Doom Eternal will release but it wont worth full price.

Absolutely. But I mean.. they can do more. If they didn't work on something for years only to scrap it, they probably could've squeezed in an id developed RAGE 2 between development on DOOM 2016 and Eternal. Really boring if id Software isn't anything but a DOOM factory now. Bring on Quake, id. Eternal is probably almost done. Start development on Quake, if you haven't already.

Just let Quake 1 remain a fond memory. Machine Games aren't the right company to make this imo.

Hell, I'd be happy with another Quake Wars.

Quake is still really playable today thanks to how it was programmed.

Probably only a matter of time before someone implements ray tracing into it as well.
