Quake turns 25 today, released on June 22, 1996




On June 22, 1996, GT Interactive released Quake, a first-person shooter developed by id Software after the great success with Wolfenstein 3D, DOOM, and DOOM 2 Hell on Earth.

The shooter of John Carmack and John Romero celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary today, Quake has immediately been enormously successful, also generating numerous controversies for the high rate of violence (similar to what happened a few years earlier with the aforementioned DOOM, also by id Software) and conquering the scene on PC. Quake 2 gets even greater success as well as Quake 3 Arena, a true precursor of many multiplayer shooters that would arrive in the following years especially on Personal Computers, dictating a real trend in the early 2000s.

In recent times, the saga no longer shines as it once did and the warm welcome given to Quake Champions has prompted Bethesda and id Software to work on new concepts, according to a rumor a Quake reboot is in development for Xbox and PC but there aren’t any confirmations in this regard, remember that Bethesda and id Software is now owned by Microsoft, who knows that under the wing of the Redmond house the glorious shooter will not be able to come back to life, exactly as happened with DOOM and Wolfenstein.
