Nvidia will be adding ray tracing support to more PC classics in the near future. The company has revealed its plans in the latest job posting, which mentioned some of the greatest titles from the past decades.

In case you're unfamiliar with PC hardware, Nvidia's new line of graphics cards has introduced real-time ray tracing capabilities and there are several games on the market that support the feature. It's heavily demanding and you can only use the feature with Nvidia's 2000 series graphics cards but the games look much prettier with more natural shadows, lighting and reflections.

Earlier this year, Nvidia announced ray tracing support for one of the most iconic games of all time - Quake II. It's safe to say that the popular shooter looks completely different and according to the latest job posting by Nvidia, more PC classics could join Nvidia's list of older games with ray tracing support.

Spotted by DSOGaming, Nvidia has posted a job listing which mentions an exciting new game remastering program. Here's the most interesting part of the post:

"We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray-tracing age. Thus, we’ll be giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great. The NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team is picking up the challenge starting with a title that you know and love but we can’t talk about here.”

The job listing appeared two weeks ago, which means that it was posted after the release of Quake 2 RTX. This means that Nvidia indeed has plans to bring ray tracing support to more PC classics.

Unfortunately, there is not even a slight hint at which games are getting ray tracing remaster. It's possible that Unreal is one of them, or Doom 3 but this is just a guess and nothing is officially confirmed at the moment.

Hopefully, Nvidia will reveal more details about their ray tracing remaster projects in the upcoming weeks.
