The Next Quake will be an RPG?

The Next Quake will be an RPG?

Looks like those Fallout 3 dollars are going a long way. Not only have Bathesda turned into a publisher with Wet and Rogue Warrior, but they have now bought the developers responsible for some of my all time favourite games like Quake.

This won’t apparently change anything at Id, other than I guess giving them a much needed investment. Whilst they are still a respected developer, they haven’t really captured the imagination since the heady days of Quake 2 and Arena.

The development of their next major title Rage, is also so far unaffected by this aquisition.

Maybe I should stop lobbying John Carmack for Quake on XBLA and start pestering the guys at Bathesda.
