Unreal ‘deserves more attention’ — Epic

It’s been almost four years since Unreal Tournament III’s late 2007 release on PC and PS3 (2008 for Xbox 360). Isn’t it high time for the series to see a new entry? Possibly.

It’s been a neglected franchise at Epic Games as of late, president Mike Capps admits. But not a forgotten one.

“We have a couple other major franchises that we’ve not been paying attention to. It’s been a long time since we shipped an Unreal game, and it’s an awfully loved franchise that we hold pretty dear here. We haven’t been giving it the attention it deserves because we’ve been focusing on Gears of War and we’re still a relatively small company,” Capps tells IndustryGamers.

“We’ve been sort of focused on making new properties, which you’ve seen with Shadow Complex, BulletStorm and Infinity Blade, but sometimes I think just as a businessman that maybe we should be spending some more time with our existing franchises.”

Fingers crossed something will materialize soon then.
