NVIDIA is set to remaster more games with RTX ray tracing

NVIDIA is set to remaster more games with RTX ray tracing

It appears that Quake II won’t be the last game to be remastered with NVIDIA ray tracing. According to DSOGaming, NVIDIA is hiring for its Lightspeed Studios unit to lead work on a ‘game remastering program’. 

The description for the job listing reads:

We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray tracing age. Thus, we’ll be giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great. The NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team is picking up the challenge starting with a title that you know and love but we can’t talk about here.

According to that description, the NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team is already working on remastering ‘a title that you know and love’. Who knows what that could be, but it’s not surprising that NVIDIA is jumping on the game-remastering train to provide gamers with more reasons to buy a GeForce RTX graphics card. 

Ray tracing is clearly the next big thing the games industry is gearing up for, between NVIDIA’s big push for it, as well as ray tracing being confirmed for the PlayStation 5 next year.
