Fortnite Could Come to Other Platforms, Primary Focus of Epic Games “For Quite a While”
Lead designer Darren Saag says Fortnite is currently the biggest project Epic is working on.
Everything in the gaming industry seems to be going the PC’s way. Major publishers are lining up with free to play titles and arena shooters exclusive to the platform and pretty much all the best indie titles are on PC. Epic Games’ Fortnite may end up coming to consoles at some point though according to lead designer Darren Saag in conversation with Eurogamer.
“Things have changed from the console space and have adapted to the new market, which is cool. So because of those adaptations the future for where Fortnite ends up is not set in stone. I think there’s lots of possibilities about how you can interact with Fortnite on different platforms.”
Saag also talked about the scale of Fortnite. “We are currently the biggest team in the organisation. Fortnite has actually been the company’s primary focus for quite a while. We do have the lion’s share of the development teams.
“We’re working with EGP (Epic Games Poland), we have engineers in Epic Seattle, and obviously we’ve got tons of guys here at HQ, so we’re definitely the biggest project that Epic is currently on. But as we’re a living project, the studio’s going to have to force-trade guys over time.”
Fortnite is a survival sandbox title set to release in 2015.
