Throughout the full Xbox Developer Direct, we noticed glimpses of the places of work of developer MachineGames. As noticed by eagle-eyed viewers, there was a shot of a whiteboard at one level that appeared to have a Quake emblem drawn on it beneath writing that appears to say “Quake 6.”
To be extra exact, the writing we are able to see says “AKE 6”, with the presumed “QU” lower off on the left-hand aspect of the display screen. The remainder of the board appears to indicate doodles of what are in all probability Indiana Jones puzzle designs, given the whiteboard seems throughout a section discussing The Nice Circle’s puzzles.
To be clear, that is nothing even near affirmation of an in-development Quake sequel. (Bethesda are handing out ‘no feedback’ to those that ask.) It is also clearly not an accident, both. I’ve visited sufficient online game studios to know that they are all coated in whiteboards they usually all both place drapes over these whiteboards when journalists go to or rub them out and write tantalising jokes of their place.
This might be one such tantalising joke, or it might be a tease for one thing real. Who is aware of.
I will be trustworthy, once I noticed it my first thought was: when was there a Quake 5? Quake 4 was the final numbered sequel within the collection, with subsequent video games going by Quake Dwell (an up to date, free-to-play Quake 3) and Quake Champions (additionally a free-to-play enviornment shooter). Quake Champions is taken into account the fifth mainline entry within the collection, so I suppose any subsequent sport might be referred to as Quake 6? Who is aware of! Who is aware of.
Given the great job they did with the trendy Wolfensteins and their more moderen work producing expanded remasters of Quake and Quake 2, MachineGames will surely be a very good studio to sort out any future battle with the Strogg. I would not say no.
