A Revitalized Edition?

There are also other panels that fans can enjoy. One of these is “Let’s talk Quake” on August 20 at 10:30 a.m. ET. Headlining this panel is John Linneman from Digital Foundry as he talks to Jerk Gustafsson of Machine Games on the iconic legacy of Quake. However, what excited many fans was the fact that the description also said something about the “revitalized edition.” That may have been a bit on the spoiler side because when you look at the schedule over at the official site, that particular sentence is no longer there. Still, it would indeed be exciting if that is the case. You can watch that panel discussion here.
