No new games from Epic in 2010

Epic Games will not be releasing Gears of War 3 in 2010. In fact Epic Games will not be releasing anything in 2010. The slackers.

Speaking to G4 at last week’s Game Developers Conference, Epic Games VP Mark Rein outlined what the coming year holds for his studio.

“We don’t have any games coming out in 2010,” said Rein, splattering our dreams over the floor like a particularly bloody headshot. “So from a games standpoint, it’s more about our customers’ games, right? Already this year we’ve seen some pretty great games this year — Mass Effect 2, BioShock 2, Arkham Asylum‘s coming out in 3D, the GOTY version, so that’ll be kinda cool.”

Whatever Rein. Telling us about other people’s games just won’t cut it, even if you did make the engine. We want Marcus Fenix running around with his Sequoia-necked chums, shooting stuff up. Alright!? *sigh*

Still, at least we know they’re doing something over there. Epic Games subsidiary People Can Fly is currently developing a new shooter called Bulletstorm, to be published by EA. Word on the street is that it may have something to do with Rein’s tease of an “exciting” E3 for Epic fans.
