Gamers are all atwitter (and pale, most likely, and possibly a little overweight) at the mere speculation that just maybe, there could possibly be some news to come from 2007 QuakeCon at the Hilton Anatole, which kicks off August 2. Seems Todd Hollenshead, CEO and co-owner of id Software, suggested to a British online gaming mag that id's been waiting to spring on the world some new hot property -- and that gaming mag used the opportunity to proclaim QuakeCon would indeed be "the coming out party for [id's] next big title."
Fact is, Hollenshead didn't really promise all that much, seems like. What he said in the interview with Eurogamer, which came out today, was only that "we're going to hold off on discussing stuff that we really don't have a lot to show about until QuakeCon, so if you happen to be in Dallas in about three weeks, you should try and make it out, and if not, stay tuned." In other words, chill. --Robert Wilonsky
