Unreal Engine 4 Slated for 2012

Mike Capps, president of Epic Games, revealed Unreal Engine 4 will coincide with the next generation of consoles expected sometime between 2012 and 2018. The next iteration of the Unreal Engine is decidedly console focused.

“We’ve got Unreal [Engine] 4 in production right now… it’s going to be in the next console generation – our rough guess is 2012 [to] 2018.”

Capps statement confirms what Epic’s technical mastermind Tim Sweeney told TGDaily in a March interview:

“Version 4 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. PCs will follow after that.”

    Don’t know who that is, but it isn’t Mike Capps. See wikipedia, etc.
