Quake II Remastered could be announced at QuakeCon

A remaster of the iconic arena shooter could be revealed at QuakeCon in August after the title was rated in South Korea.

The details:

  • The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has now rated an unannounced remaster of Quake II, confirming that the game will be released on PC, as reported by Gematsu. When it comes to unannounced titles, the ratings board is known to be a reliable source, having recently leaked the existence of LEGO 2K Goooal!, which has yet to be confirmed by Take-Two Interactive. It's expected to be revealed at QuakeCon 2023, which will take place from August 10 to August 13.
  • The same ratings board was also responsible for the original Quake remaster leaking ahead of its reveal at QuakeCon in 2021, with the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) also revealing that the game would be arriving on PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, and Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
  • Many of the features introduced in the first Quake remaster are expected to be included in Quake II Remastered, including co-op and PvP multiplayer with crossplay, free mods and missions, and even an entirely new expansion pack 15 years after the original PC release in 1996. As Microsoft owns developer id Software, the game will most likely be available on day one via Xbox Game Pass.
