Unreal Engine 4 will be shown this year, you will be “shocked”
Apparently, it’s already running on systems Epic “can’t name yet”.
Later this year, the video game industry will take a large step forward towards photo-realistic visuals, or at least we hope so, and if this is anything to go by.
Epic Games’ Mark Rein confirmed the studio will be showing its brand spanking new Unreal Engine 4 this year. It promises to shock.
“People are going to be shocked later this year when they see Unreal Engine 4 and how much more profound an effect it will have,” Rein told G4TV at the DICE 2012 summit.
Rein also said the new visual engine is already running on systems he “can’t name yet”, then quickly tried to hide his grin as everyone in the DICE summit raised their eyebrows in unison.
So, when will this “later this year” going to happen? The most immediate major gaming event is Game Developers Conference next month, but will they reveal it so soon? It could be in E3, most likely.
