The Australian Classification Board (ACB) has reviewed a new game from developer Id Software and publisher Bethesda.
Entitled “Project 2021B,” which is likely the codename for an unannounced title, the game was rated M (Mature) on June 28.
Among the consumer advice section of the ranking, ACB mentions “online interactivity” as a feature of the game.
In January of this year, ACB evaluated Id Software and Bethesda’s “Project 2021A”. Two months later, the game was confirmed to be Doom 3: VR Edition for PlayStation VR.
June 22 marked the 25th anniversary of the release of the first Quake. Days earlier, XboxEra’s Nick Baker claimed to have heard that a new entry in the classic FPS series was in development at Id Software and MachineGames. It will include single player and multiplayer modes, as well as a female protagonist, it has been told.
Id Software’s latest major release, Doom Eternal from March 2020, will receive graphics upgrades for next-gen consoles this week.
A free update released on June 29 will optimize the game for Xbox Series X / S and PS5, with each version offering a choice of performance options. PC owners will also receive an upgrade that adds ray tracing to hardware that supports it.
Bethesda recently confirmed that QuakeCon will return in August 2021 as a fully digital event for the second year in a row.
