Out have come the latest-and-greatest in technological feats regarding what the video games industry hopes to achieve by the next-generation. Epic Games’ new engine – Unreal Engine 4 – looks to bring the industry kicking and screaming into the next console generation.
Cliff Bleszinski, design director at Epic Games, spoke on the topic.
"There is a huge responsibility on the shoulders of our engine team and our studio to drag this industry into the next generation. 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."
So, it looks like Cliffy-B wants to move on to the next-gen. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below.
