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 would be great if Epic to make another game like Unreal, only set in a more interesting and imaginative world.



Wow did you even play the same Unreal as I did? I still rate it as one of my all time favorite games BECAUSE it was such an interesting an imaginative world. I was like the gaming equivalent some of the types of sci-fi stories I enjoy which create a whole different but believable world (for example "Dune" and "To Your Scattered Bodies Go"). I don't think this has been done since, at least not in the sort of games I play.

Yes it didn't have a movie-like plot or cut scenes (a bonus as that would have just got in the way), the really memorable characters were the maps that actually felt like real places rather than a series of corridors - The Sunspire, Bluff Eversmoking and so on.
