Posted on September 11, 2012 - 7:00am by ThatPunkAdam

If you play enough current games you've probably have run into the amazing Unreal Engine technology, and with Epic Games' improving their graphics with every game the two seem to be a perfect fit. That being said, it seems that Epic's next game is so big it will need its own studio in Seattle, with its primary focus on Unreal Engine 4.

If you haven't seen the latest Unreal Engine takes a look at this demo from this year's E3 by the guys over at Machinma...

Epic has also joined forces with, English studio, Pitbull to add some power and get the engine running for the next game. Both teams are planned to meet in Seattle for the completion of the project, and are expected to stay together after the development of the game to work on future titles.

Although the engine isn't finished yet, you can clearly tell from the demo video and the fact that game companies are opening new studios exclusively for the engine that it's going to be huge.

Epic’s, PC exclusive, Fortnight will be the first game to run the engine, so you'll be able sample the latest of Unreal's technology when that game is released.
