Bethesda celebrates Quake’s 15th birthday

Thursday, 23rd June 2011 10:28 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sonic’s not the only one celebrating a birthday.

id Software’s Quake has turned 15, having first launched back in 1996. It was the developer’s last newly introduced IP until RAGE releases later this year.

To celebrate, Bethesda Blog’s gone live with remarks from id co-founder John Carmack and president Todd Hollenshead, as well as a video of a young Carmack providing a short Q&A at Quakeworld 1996.

Quakeaddicted‘s also gone up with an interview with ex-id veteran and Spicy Horse co-founder American McGee.

Quake 5 will be along before you know it.

    How about Quake 5? With the design philosophy of the 3rd game?

    Was Quake John Romero’s last game at id? Anyway, hopefully there will be another Quake gsme made by id not outsourced to another developer.

    You could’ve at least used the Quake logo Johnny! :) That’s the Quake 4 version.

    Huh?! Sonic is only five years older than Quake?! That is madness.

    @2 they stopped outsourcing once they signed with Bethesda/ZeniMax in June 2009 and have stated all id IPs will be handled in house…

    Based on Q4, I hope they never make another Quake again.
