Quake Remastered Error: Failed to initialize window for Vulkan
Before we dive into what we currently know about this error that players are being troubled with constantly, there have been other errors that players have faced, our articles on these errors have been linked below, they may be of help to you.
The possible root cause for this is said to be when you run the game on an old integrated GPU, to fix this you have to force the game to use your preferred GPU, if you have one, you can do this for the Nvidia GPU through the control panel, but we cannot say for sure, we will suggest that you update/re-install your drivers or use the inbuilt application to force Quake to use your preferred GPU.
Other than this, we will have to wait for the developers to issue official fixes for this error and the other errors that players are facing.
