Epic is ready to demo the company’s new Unreal Engine 4 at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) to “select licensees, partners and prospective customers.” It’s worth noting that these people have to sign NDAs (Non-disclosure agreement) before they’re allowed to get a view of what the tech can do.
Unreal Engine is, of course, the tech being used by a lot of games nowadays. Chief examples would be Epic’s own Gears of War franchise and Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum and its sequel. So, naturally, when the engine’s next major step is shown off, a lot of people will be very interested.
In related Epic GDC news, it’s also worth noting that Gears of War game director Cliff Bleszinski (CliffyB) will also be the one doing hosting duties for the show’s award ceremonies which will take place on March 7.
