Leaked Quake 2 remaster reportedly getting a QuakeCon reveal next week

During this year’s QuakeCon, a Quake 2 remaster is expected to be officially unveiled. The remaster was first hinted at when it appeared on the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea’s website in June. According to reliable leaker billbil-kun, the Quake 2 remaster will be released for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch, which are the same platforms that received the 25th anniversary remaster of the original Quake. The remaster will be called Quake 2 and will not include the ‘Remastered’ suffix from the South Korean ratings board listing.

Digital Foundry took a look at Quake 2 RTX back in 2019.

Fans of Quake 2 should mark their calendars for QuakeCon 2023, as more information is expected to be revealed during the event. This year’s QuakeCon will be the first in-person show in three years due to COVID and will take place from Thursday, 10th August, through Sunday, 13th August.

It’s worth noting that this won’t be the first time Quake 2 has received an update. Nvidia previously released a version of the game with hardware-accelerated ray tracing in 2019, which was well-received by Digital Foundry’s Alex Battaglia.
