Epic Not Working on New Unreal Games

An interview on Forbes talks with Mike Capps, President of Epic Games about the developer's future plans (thanks Eurogamer). Along the way he explains that they are not working on any Unreal/Unreal Tournament games at the moment, though there's no word on whether they have any Jazz Jackrabbit projects in the works. Here's word:

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. 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.

They kept straying further away from the core formula. That's not to say UT3 was actually a bad game - it was actually quite enjoyable. And the engine was very poor from a PC perspective, with UE3's typical excessive bloom and poor anti-aliasing. And Unreal 3 was a flop.

Epic has long given up on PC gamers. Afterall, most console games are ported to PC and yet after Gears Of War they gave up on bringing the franchise to PC. They were chasing the money and lost track of their fanbase, which is readily apparent when you see them bashing review sites for giving a game 8/10.

It's ironic that Square Enix, a publisher renowned for its console titles, does a better job of supporting the PC (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) than Epic, a company that pioneered PC gaming. Sad.
