Activision to Publish Two New id Software Games

Announce Development of QUAKE IV and an All-New Game (September 04, 2001)
Building on its tradition of bringing triple-A titles to the PC, Activision, Inc. announced that it will publish two new id Software games -- QUAKE IV and a new as yet untitled game.

"id Software and Activision have enjoyed a tremendous partnership on some of the best-selling and most celebrated action games of all time," said Larry Goldberg, vice president, worldwide studios, Activision. "We look forward to continuing this relationship and working closely with id on QUAKE IV and the new franchise. The best is yet to come."


QUAKE IV is in development by Raven Software and marks a return to id Software's trademark single-player gameplay experience set in the QUAKE II universe, one of the best selling franchises in PC gaming history. QUAKE IV will use id Software's advanced new DOOM game engine.

The new unnamed franchise is based on an original design by id Software and is being developed by Nerve Software, a new development company based in Mesquite, TX. The company was co-founded by Brandon James, a level designer at id Software on QUAKE II and QUAKE III Arena.
