Epic to Unveil Unreal Engine 4 at GDC

By   /   Feb 27, 2012


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.
