The legendary arena shooter has been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board suggesting an imminent announcement from the publisher Bethesda.

Quake has been rated online which could mean that the rumours about the remastered version are indeed true. The Entertaiment Software Rating Board (ESRB) have rated Quake for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch.

Here is the rating summary:

This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier that travels through time to stop an evil force from destroying humanity. Players traverse through maze-like medieval enviornments and use shotguns, nail guns, and grenade launchers to kill various enemies (e.g., zombies, demonic forces, scorpions, humans) in frenetic run-and-gun combat. Battles are accompanied by gunfire sounds, screams of pain, and large explosions. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and several attack cause enemies to explode into bloody chunks. Some areas depict mutilated body parts on the ground or falling from ceilings.

 Rumours regarding the project state that the original Quake game is getting a "revitalised edition" with fancy new visuals and other improvements though, this has yet to be confirmed officially, so take it with a grain of salt. 

That being said, it looks like that a big Quake announcement is coming and QuakeCon 21 seems to be the perfect place for that.
