Unreal Engine 4 Will Be Ready When Next-Gen Consoles Ship

31 07 2008

So…let’s take a trip Back to the Future… Ha, like how I did that? lol  Anyways….It seems that awesome folks at Epic Games are already at work on the Unreal Engine 4.   Or so says Mike Capps, he confirmed progress on Unreal Engine 4 mentioning that it should be ready for debut “…in the next console generation – our rough guess is 2012 – 2018.”

Another interesting not is that the  UE4 will have “console focus” where “version 4 will exclusively target the next console generation, Microsoft’s successor for the Xbox 360, Sony’s successor for the Playstation 3 – and if Nintendo ships a machine with similar hardware specs, then that also. PCs will follow after that.”

I know one thing, if this next engine looks even half as good as UE3 (see Gears of War 2), then they might as well change the name to Surreal Engine…because that’s what it’s going to seem like.  Living life in a video game, which is what I guess they are striving for.

Eventually, won’t video game graphics improve to the point where they visually couldn’t get any better? I wonder if eventually, they’ll be interactive movies, :O.
