Unreal Engine 4 to Be Shown at GDC 2012
Earlier this month we reported that Epic Games let the word out that their newest iteration on the Unreal Engine would be seeing the light of day this year. Epic has officially announced that the engine will be showcased next week in San Francisco during GDC 2012.
Within the announcement, Epic stated that it will unveil Unreal Engine 4, the “next-generation game technology”, to “select licensees, partners and prospective customers during the exhibition.”
VP of Epic Games Mark Rein stated his excitement for the debut of their “ass-kicking” new tech:
“What’s really exciting about seeing this love letter to hardware manufacturers is understanding how Unreal Engine goes from iPhone right up to the most ass-kicking PC you can buy that’s hopefully representative of what the next-gen might be. And it’s ready today.”
One thing’s for sure – if they wow the crowds at GDC this year as much as they did last year with the Unreal Engine 3 Samaritan demo, faces might literally melt.
