It seems that Epic Games knows what the specs of next-gen consoles of Sony and Microsoft are, otherwise why would they want them to be more powerful? Recently they have said that they are talking to Sony and Microsoft to go all out with the specs for their next-gen consoles.
“There is a huge responsibility on the shoulders of our engine team and our studio to drag this industry into the next generation,” said Gears of War Design Director Cliff Bleszinski to Wired.
“It is up to Epic, and Tim Sweeney in particular, to motivate Sony and Microsoft not to phone in what these next consoles are going to be. It needs to be a quantum leap. They need to damn near render Avatar in real time, because I want it and gamers want it – even if they don’t know they want it.”
Tim Sweeney of Epic Games said that they are very close to the console makers and are doing everything they can to ensure they are a big leap over the current consoles.
“We’re much more in sync with the console makers than any other developer is. That means we can give detailed recommendations with a complete understanding of what is going to be commercially possible,” he said.
Here are the leaked screenshots and details of their next engine – Unreal Engine 4. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
