Epic Games is back in the spotlight after GDC 2014 where it revealed new information on its upcoming titles like Couch Knight. This was subsequently followed by information on Fortnite. Epic still has a lot more to showcase according to co-founder Tim Sweeney.

In conversation with EDGE, Sweeney says that the studio is working on a game that is “going to push next generation graphics as you’d always expect Epic to do.

“There’s a lot [of Unreal Engine 4 games] on the way and a large number of them haven’t been announced. You’ll see lots of triple-A stuff coming out over time.” The game could be based off the previously seen tech demos for Unreal Engine 4, namely Samaritan and Infiltrator.

These games might not be the same AAA releases you’re used to though. “The industry’s changing. This generation it seems like there are about a third of the number of triple-A titles in development across the industry as there was last time around – and each one seems to have about three times the budget of the previous generation. I think we’re heading towards a future where triple-A is the minority.”

    if it need 3 times the budget then yeah probably as graphics get more detailed youve got stuff like PBR adding to development time, global illumination etc theres just more stuff to do to make a game look great as power increases so its prolly harder and harder to find the money to do it…

    kind of like the hobbits 48 fps $500million thing that i havnt seen, most people werent impressed alot ppl thought it looked weird maybe us gamers find it good cus were used to high frame rate visuals and stuff but its prolly why the hobbit is in 3 parts whilst the book was in 2 parts cus he needs make some money back. Personally i found Hobbit 2 abit of a let down, gets through all this boring stuff gets in the mountain then the bit i was waiting for ages for smaug to go and kick some @ss then it ends and i though uggh what a let down… least hobbit 3 should be action packed.
