Speaking at the recent DICE summit, Epic’s Mark Rein has confirmed that Unreal Engine 4 is already up and running on next generation consoles.
Picked up by GAF, Rein said that the engine, the last version of which was famously used to power Gears of War, is already functional on PC, and “systems [they] can’t name yet.”
The news won’t be too shocking to anyone, Epic (or at least, Unreal) are normally up there present and correct with new technology (see Infinity Blade) but if nothing else we can expect next-gen to feature even more bald space marines.
Is that still a meme?
In other, related and equally bitty news, Future published Xbox World Magazine says that the new Xbox will be a “matt-black media hub” with “four player finger-tracking Kinect” and – get this – a “tablet-like controller”.
I can’t wait for E3. The burgers are amazing.
