Epic will preview next-gen Unreal 4 Engine at GDC
Epic Games has busy getting their new next-gen engine ready for a behind closed doors look at GDC this year. Only the most important folks (see: the money people) will probably be in on the show as well as some lucky appointment only media types (myself not included).
Whenever I think of a game company unveiling a new groundbreaking engine or secret media meetings with non-disclosure agreements I have a specific picture in my mind. In my head there is always a slighty sweaty and nervous office assistant in business casual trying to operate a crude power point presentation. Specifically for Epic I envision them using those stock clip art characters, but they’re all carrying little chainsaw bayonet guns. When the presentation is over I like to picture Cliff Bleszenski standing, looking at the audience expectantly and saying “You all have boners right now, am I right?” And everyone would nod. Because they do. I mean that’s just a given.
