We’ll see Unreal Engine 4 this year — Epic’s Rein

Unreal Engine 4 is in for a reveal before the year’s out, Epic Games’ vice president Mark Rein has said.

“People are going to be shocked later this year when they see Unreal Engine 4 and how much more profound an effect it will have,” he told G4 in no unclear terms in a recent chat.

It’s been previously said that the new tech would launch be ready at or near next-gen launch. Most of Epic tech guru Tim Sweeney’s time these days is dedicated to the new engine.

For now, the closest we have is the Samaritan demo the studio released a while back. It was presented as their vision of what the next generation could look like. Have a look at it here.
