3D Realms Plans QUAKE-Engine Shooter

1C Entertainment and 3D Realms announce plans to bring Ion Maiden to consoles next year, widening the reach of this dad joke-titled shooter using the old-timey Build-engine. As that wave of nostalgia crashes about us, they also reveal they are collaborating on another retro shooter, saying an FPS based on the original QUAKE engine is also in the works (so this isn't a revival of the original Duke Nukem Forever, as that was announced as a QUAKE 2 engine game). There are no other details, here's the part of the announcement covering the news:
1C Entertainment, a global PC and console publisher will collaborate with 3D Realms, the developer of classic first-person shooters including Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior, to bring Ion Maiden to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2019, in addition to the previously announced Steam release. Both companies will also collaborate on a new unannounced FPS based on the original Quake engine coming to all the same platforms as Ion Maiden.

Ion Maidenís exclusive multi-hour preview campaign is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian. The retro first-person shooter developed in the Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, will simultaneously release on all platforms Q2 2019 in both digital and physical formats. In this prequel to 2016ís Bombshell, Shelly has to take down transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel.
