Epic Games’ Fortnite “Has Evolved”, “Tremendous Fun to Playtest”
Epic thinks “there’s a big opportunity” to be had with Fortnite.
Epic Games didn’t reveal any new details about their upcoming zombie title Fortnite at GDC 2014 but work is still progressing on the game. After all the development time that’s already been devoted, the game has actually evolved over time and according to engine GM Ray Davis while talking to RPS at GDC 2014, tremendous progress has been made.
“I would say it has evolved. Like all game development, it’s a long, long road and lots of things are discovered along the way. With Fortnite, the way I look at it is we think there’s a big opportunity, and the last thing you want to do is rush something before it’s really found its core.
“The team’s been working really hard. I think they’ve made some tremendous progress. Hopefully we’ll be able to talk about it more soon. I can say that it’s a tremendous amount of fun to playtest.”
Fortnite is currently only heading to PC and will apparently be releasing this year. Stay tuned for more details.
