Epic Making PC Exclusive Game

"We might be working on a PC-only title," said Epic's Mike Capps during a PAX East panel, reports Joystiq, saying Cliff Bleszinski followed this more concretely, saying: "Let me say that again: we are working on a PC game." After the panel Capps confirmed to them that this project is underway and that they currently plan on it being a PC exclusive, but no other details were offered.

Good luck selling any copies to all those "pirating, self absorbed, entitled" PC gamers that you so lovingly insulted.

Did Bleszinski actually use those words? Can you give me a link?

Yeah, that made me WTF so I looked around and all I could find were references to a 2010 interview where Mike Capps said that they switched to console focus because there was more money in consoles than in PCs (because of piracy) Link. As hard as I looked I didn't find any official statement from Epic that openly insulted PC gamers in that manner.

World of Unreal, a subscription based MMORPG set in the world of Unreal pitting the human and Nali alliance against the unified horde of Skaarj and Krall. There is also the promise that there will never, ever, be pandas.

This strikes me more as croporate politics in that they're sending MS and Sony a message about getting new consoles out as opposed to actually caring about PC gaming.

Or more likely Epic can only say "PC exclusive" because the other platforms haven't been officially announced yet. You can bet your ass after MS and Sony reveal the next gen consoles the story will change.

That's not necessarily true. Any developer will target the platform(s) they think they can make the most money from. If the current gen of consoles are really at the age where it's impossible to create the kind of game you want to make, that leaves the PC. And even if the next-gen of consoles is released during the same timeframe, they still need time to build a customer base before they could be seriously considered in lieu of the PC market.

Maybe if we're lucky they can reuse that multiplayer netcode from the original Unreal release ;p

Exactly. Unless they pull off something miraculous I'm not even going to look at whatever they're doing. And this is why you don't treat potential customers like crap over the years if you ever want their business and you're providing a luxury that they want and not a service that they need. I think Epic and too many like them are confused thinking themselves the latter.

Color me surprised...and skeptical.


That will be ported to the 360 and PS3 within 6 months no doubt. With tons of carefully constructed walls to hide behind and pop up and shoot from.

and the pc version will ask the player to press the start button on the controller.

Also the PC version will have DRM that requires you to get presidential permission every time you want to run the exe.
