"It seems that they should focus on an "all we should be doing is making engines" model of business"
Epic DOES only make engines. That's why they contract independant developers like Legend and DE.
" the Unreal brand has taken all these embarassing twists, and turned into this fiasco of ridiculous names and more confusion."
A few magazines reported the wrong name of the newest build of the Unreal Engine, and Epic has said that they are simply THINKING of MAYBE changing the name of their games. That's hardly a fiasco. Don't blow things out of proportion.
