Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney confirmed at develop Conference this week that the Unreal Tournament developer is working on a new AAA shooter. I gotta tell ya, I think it’s probably a new Gears of War game for the Xbox One – but there hasn’t been a new entry in the Unreal series since 2007, not counting re-releases, so cross your fingers for something PC freindly from the creators of one of the most ubiquitous engines in the industry today.
While he was chatting about Epic’s projects, Sweeney made a short reference to Fortnite, Epic’s cartoony zombie survival and crafting affair, which we’ve heard almost nothing about since it was first announced in late 2011. It looks like that’s still happening, then.
Sweeney also said that Epic is working on a number of other projects of various sizes; he noted that the developer is having a great time learning as it goes how to work on projects of different scale.
