During the recent Xbox Developer Direct showcase, gamers were excited about the upcoming game Indiana Jones and the Great Circle. However, not many noticed the hidden reference to another legendary series – Quake.
A user named Idle Sloth on Twitter shared a screenshot from the promotional material of the game, showing the “Quake 6” logo. This strongly suggests that a new installment in the Quake series is already in production.
While the number 6 may seem odd, considering that the last numbered entry in the Quake series was released 19 years ago (Quake 4 in 2005), it’s worth noting that the unofficially titled Quake Champions from 2022 could be considered a “fifth” entry.
MachineGames, the studio responsible for Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, is typically associated with the Wolfenstein series. However, they were also involved in the recent remasters of Quake and Quake 2, which featured several old levels created by the Swedish developers, as well as a new one.
Previous speculations hinted at Bethesda’s (the parent company of Quake and Doom) next plans revolving around a new Doom game. However, the discovery of the Quake reference in the Indiana Jones and the Great Circle promotional material suggests that there may also be plans for Quake 6.
We eagerly await official confirmation and more information regarding the future of the Quake series.
