Thursday 13-Mar-2008 11:03 AM UE4 "will exclusively target the next console generation", reveals Epic In news that will have PC gamers shacking fists angrily at the great gaming god in the sky (or maybe not), Epic's revealed that console is the main focus for the next version of its Unreal Engine. Version 4 of the technology "will exclusively target the next console generation, Microsoft's successor for the Xbox 360, Sony's successor for the PlayStation 3 - and if Nintendo ships a machine with similar hardware specs, then that also", Epic's Tim Sweeney has told TG Daily. "PCs will follow after that", he added. It's a switch of focus for Epic. The PC platform has traditionally been the number one priority for Unreal tech in the past. Sweeney went on to talk about Unreal Engine 3, saying there's still a long life ahead for that version and that it'll continue to be improved during this console cycle - "So, it is normal to expect that we will add new stuff in 2011 and 2012". Epic's expecting it to be another three to four years at least then until the next console wave initiates.
