Gears of War creator Epic Games has revealed that it's working on an "exciting" unannounced title "that doesn't fit easily into some existing genre", dropping a hint that another new IP could be on the way.

"We're making something new and exciting that doesn't fit easily into some existing genre," Epic told VG247 this afternoon. "It's going to be uniquely Epic, but we have nothing further to announce at this time."

News of Epic's unannounced title first hit the headlines earlier today when it was revealed that the studio was working on an "unannounced competitive online action game that includes player progression, heavy itemization, and a dynamic economy".

Besides Gears of War, Epic has previously developed Unreal Tournament, Infinity Blade and Shadow Complex.

It's also working on Fortnite, an Unreal Engine 4-powered co-op survival title due for release later this year.
