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.

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.
Thats kind of a bad example considering the group that worked on DE:HR is the former Eidos group.

SE's group that has always made console games can not port a game to PC to save its life. FFXI and FFXIV are perfect examples. FFXI is over 8 years old and the game crashes if you ALT+TAB. There are a ton of other examples that I just won't get into. Users had to make a windower that hooks the game to make it possible.

As for Gears of War on PC its the same with any developer now. They release it MONTHS or even YEARS after the console version, wonder why sales are shit, and blame it on piracy. Tho I think most of GoW's PC release issues were relating to the virgin GfWL system this is still plagued with issues.

UT3's problem was it was heavily consolised in its release (even if it was mostly just the menus/UI) and was nothing more than UT2K4 with better graphics. Tho UT3 was still ground breaking in two respects. Native support for KB&M on the PS3 and the ability to build mods for the PS3.
