You know who did say that? Overkill Software.

Oh, I'm sorry, I must have missed the part where companies have to uphold the wishes and promises of the companies they buy, despite said promises and wishes being bad business models.

I meant it as a jest, pointing out that even if they had said they would never change the payment schedule, it doesn't mean they would uphold it. That said, claiming in no unclear terms that microtransactions will never enter a game then putting them in is a good way to hurt your standing with a player-base, as Overkill Software discovered (the company that developed Payday and Payday 2, remember how everyone was up in arms over that a short while ago?).

Never played Quake, but it sounds like this move only affects players who never swapped to Steam, new players, Linux players, and maybe a stat migration could have happened, or a more communicative approach could have been used, but what's done is done.
