Is Quake losing it?

The visceral FPS Quake III could be dropped from the World Cyber Games.

The roster of games to be played at the WCG in Korea later this year is being finalised and it is rumoured that Quake III will be dropped in favour of Warcraft III.

If confirmed the decision will shift the emphasis of the WCG from shooters to strategy games.

The roster for the game fest looks set to include Age of Mythology, Starcraft: Brood War, Counter-Strike and Unreal Tournament.

There hasn’t been much mention of a Quake IV recently, so is the series finally losing its charm? More as and when.
