Bethesda released the full schedule for QuakeCon 2021 earlier today, ahead of its August 19 launch. It's an all-digital affair, with a nice mix of livestreams focused on Doom, Deathloop, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls Online, and yeah: Quake.

Actually, it's probably going to be an interesting one for Quake, because a now-amended listing for the 'Let's Talk Quake' event on the Saturday morning referenced a forthcoming 'revitalized' version of the 1996 shooter.


Here's the event listing's original description, via Wayback Machine:


"Quake is back, in this special stream John Linneman from Digital Foundry talks to Jerk Gustafsson of Machine Games about the title's iconic legacy and what it meant to both of them. The pair will also discuss the additional content Machine Games have contributed to this revitalized edition."

Remaster? That would be neat. Also: Jerk Gustafsson is an unfortunate name...
