    Are the rumours true? Is Quakelive ending soon?

    I've heard on the grape vine that Quakelive is ending in the next couple of months. Can anyone confirm this?

    Posts like that get removed as they're misinformation and damaging to the company, but then people try to claim it must br true as its been removed.

    Its absolutely not true, synceror was already forced to comment on reposts:

    I'd hardly call it random, people have been flat out stating it as fact since 2009

    The original Quake is STILL being played, still available on steam even.

    You're kidding aren't you? Ever since open beta people have been claiming that QL is dead / dying / about to be terminated. The internet is full of trolls dontcha know. No smoke without fire is one of those classic rumour mill phrases. Well Done.

    What would be the point of shutting it down? I dont get it.. And what exactly do you mean by shut down? Completely closed or just remove the support?


    imo i feel quakelive is doing very well based on what kind of FPS it is. You cant really expect to gain a huge mass of new players into games who take effort and practice like Quake.

    Those two would be the same thing.

    If the game's really dying - I hope the devs make the whole game downloadable as a farewell gift. Otherwise the last 5 years have been a complete waste.

    This rumour mill is ridiculous. The words of those who actually know what is going on are ignored.
