More classic games are getting the ray-tracing treatment

The RTX port of Quake 2 was, suffice to say, more than impressive, especially for such an old game. Not content with that proof of concept though, NVidia have made the commitment to retro-fit even more classic games with the technology, breathing new life into them.

The RTX remastering program, as it will be known, will start with a title "that you know and love" - although it's not yet been confirmed which. Duke Nukem 3D would be my personal choice.

The news comes via DSOGaming, who spotted a job posting stating;

We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray tracing age, giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great

The position is at Lightspeed Studios, the team at Nvidia also responsible for the Quake 2 RTX port. In the past, it's worked on Shield ports for various games including Portal, Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 - so these could all be candidates for the RTX treatment too.

Half-Life 2 in RTX, now that'd be nice... what games do you want to see in RTX glory? Let us know in the comments below.
