One of the more interesting rumours from id’s Quakecon was that the millionaire id games programmer John Carmack may be working on a version of Quake Arena
for the DS.
The information was given by John Carmack who said that he “may” be working on a version of the 1999 PC game for the Nintendo handheld. He then said "I'm pretty sure I'm going to make that one happen," before saying that he would like such a game to be limited to a Doom-style
control scheme with use of the D-pad only and not “touch controlled” like Metroid Prime: Hunters
While no firm plans are yet in place the DS does seem to be a good platform for the 90’s multiplayer Quake
game as it has the graphical power for such a game and its online ability would allow for large mulitplayer sessions.
Other tidpbits from Quakecon include Quake Wars being dated
