QUAKE "Reboot" Possible

id Software is considering a return to the QUAKE series, John Carmack tells Eurogamer, though while id's technical director says "strong factions" within the company are in favor of this, he also notes this is speculative as they continue work on RAGE and DOOM 4, saying: "Nothing is scheduled here, people are not building this." His comments indicate that if this comes to pass, their leaning is towards a reboot of the Cthulhu-style mash-up of the first game, rather than the Strogg-oriented sequels. "We went from the Quake 2 and the Quake 4 Strogg universe. We are at least tossing around the possibilities of going back to the bizarre, mixed up Cthulhu-ish Quake 1 world and rebooting that direction," he tells them. "We think that would be a more interesting direction than doing more Strogg stuff after Quake 4. We certainly have strong factions internally that want to go do this."

The dragon did get included as the final boss by Rogue in Quake Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity.

As for what exactly Romero is credited for see the following URL: episodes_maps.html Yes, he was a main designer for Quake, and did some good work, but when it came down to crunch time he was playing instead of working. When I spoke to Romero at E3 in 1999 he did admit to playing when he should have been working, though he also indicated that there were other factors for his leaving such as different creative direction as someone pointed out he wanted some RPG elements...which I think found themselves in Deus Ex. Of course the only ones that truly know what happened are Romero, the Carmacks, Cloud, and Willits. American McGee and especially Sandy Petersen most likely were also aware of what happened since it looks like they filled in for Romero and helped finish Quake.

I think it would be great if the Carmacks and Romero were to reunite for a Quake reboot. I think that would be just the thing for Romero to get interested in doing some more programming and mapping. However, I doubt that Adrian Carmack would be willing or able to return after John, Kevin Cloud, and Tim Willits et la "forced him out" just 6 years ago. At least Romero's departure has been a decade and a half ago and perhaps all parties have been able to recover from the bad feelings enough to give it another go. But, id does have some excellent talent working for them even if Romero or Adrian don't return and a Quake Reboot would be a fun game as long as it's not just a PC port of a console game which unfortunately it looks like is the direction that idsoftware is moving toward.
