Remains a 'huge influence' on the studio now most famous for Gears of War and the Unreal Engine.
There is no Unreal project in development at Epic, despite recent sentiment from the studio's president that the franchise wasn't being given the attention it deserved.
"It's been a long time since we shipped an Unreal game, and it's an awfully loved franchise that we hold pretty dear here," Capps told IndustryGamers in July.
"We haven't been giving it the attention it deserves because we've been focusing on Gears of War and we're still a relatively small company."
However, despite this admission it appears there's no Unreal-themed project in development at Epic.
"Unreal and Unreal Tournament continue to have a huge influence on the studio here, even though we're not currently working on an Unreal IP project," Capps told Forbes in a recent interview. "Epic's core game making philosophy of 'when everyone says it's done, keep polishing!' came from our experiences with Unreal Tournament. That's the beginning of our quality-focused studio DNA."
Epic launched Gears of War 3 earlier this week. Hear what we thought by checking out the video review below.
