Minecraft owner starts to regret Quake III challenge

Written by Nick Farell

Markus “Notch” Persson thinks he made a strategic error
A day after challenging Bethesda Softworks to settle a legal dispute by playing Quake III, Minecraft's owner thinks he might have made a strategic miscalculation.

Notch Persson twigged, after he made his challenge, that Bethesda might actually give his outfit a good kicking. Bethesda sued the title of his upcoming game Scrolls.

However Persson realised that if it came to a Quake III tournament, Minecraft just might have to change the name. Bethesda owns the Quake brand and has several professional Quake players on its payroll. When picking the game, Quake III might have been a poor choice.

Persson says he has not heard back from Bethesda yet, he thinks a stunt like this could be a great way for the Fallout publisher to save face.
