Quake IV was an Xbox 360 launch game, so plenty of people might have missed it. At least, that’s the logic Bethesda is using to justify this cut-price re-release. The hopeful cynic in me wants to think it’s all the beginnings of the next marketing push for Bethesda’s next FPS, which might just be Doom 4 if rumours are to be believed.
Alternatively, it might be something to drum up support for the Dishonored release, currently slated for Q2 2012 – that would mean before the end of June so it could fit in nicely.
The game will be re-released on the 19th June in North America for the pittance of just $19.99. No specific date or price is given for Europe or the UK but we’d expect it at the same time for roughly the same figure, regardless of exchange rate – £19.99.
