id Software has announced that its next project for Xbox Live Arcade is called Quake Arena Arcade, based on the ever popular Quake 3 Arena FPS.

Coupled with the announcement of Quake Zero (see elsewhere) and back catalogue titles coming to Steam, it formed a retro-minded opening to the QuakeCon press conference.

Footage wasn't shown in the opening moments, but the fact it's coming will at least lay to rest those rumours that sprang up after Quake 3 Team Arena popped up on the ESRB website.
