Epic working on unannounced 'triple A shooter'


Epic boss Tim Sweeney has told attendees at this year's Develop conference that the studio is currently working on a new triple AAA shooter.

“We’re building several games at different scales.

“We’re building Fortnite, a PC online game which is a fun, sort of Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead. It’s a 35-person team. It’s not aiming to beat Call of Duty in terms of graphics. It’s more of a Pixar art style and a limited project in scope, just aimed at fun as opposed to massive breakthroughs in scale.

“We’re building a bigger, triple-A shooter project that hasn’t been announced yet.

“And we’ve also internally started developing really tiny projects with two or three guys working together as a team for a few months in small scale game development.”

It'd probably not be too out there to suggest that Epic are probably working on a new Gears of War game, although we'll probably find out soon enough.

... Or a new Unreal Tournament. I hope it's something brand new, but I'd be happy with a next gen UT.

Rather see a new Unreal than Gears, not sure I want either though after the last instalments of both franchises.

Since when could you compare Minecraft to Pixar in terms of style?

They said Minecraft meets L4D in game style, Pixar in art style.

I've heard it will definitely be Infinity Blade III for the XBOX ONE.

I would like to see Gears 4, a new UT or Bulletstorm 2 to be honest, if it's a new IP then it could be good too.

As long as it's not another Gears of War game, I'll consider buying it... I was over Gears after the third, how about trying something new Epic? You have the game engine sure but what about the innovation... precisely.
