Epic Games widely used Unreal Engine’s 4th iteration will not be supporting the Nintendo Wii U it was revealed.
With Epic having danced around the issue for a while, the question of whether the Wii U would be supported by Unreal Engine 4 was thrust straight at them during GDC this week to which Epic co-founder Mark Rein replied with laughter “No.”
Update: The Video has been removed due to copyright infringements claimed by Epic Games.
Original Story: A gameplay video from Epic’s upcoming ‘Fortnite’, the first official video game which will use the said company’s next generation engine, the Unreal Engine 4, has been leaked online.
Epic Games announced today it has licensed the Unreal Engine 4 to German developer YAGER, best known for Spec Ops: The Line which was released last year. This is now the first European studio to license the tech.
Managing director at YAGER, Timo Ullmann voiced his approval of the Unreal Engine technology, “Unreal Engine 4 is, hands down, the best toolset for creating next-generation, AAA games, Unreal Engine 3 enabled our great team to tap its full potential for the development for our award-winning game Spec Ops: The Line and beyond.

The creators of Deadlight, the post-apocalyptic zombie-infested 2D game, Tequila Works, are reportedly working on a new project, which is going to be based on Epic’s highly anticipated new engine, Unreal Engine 4.
They have published 2 announcements, one from which we found out the engine, and one from which it seems that a major publisher is going to bring out the respective game.
Tequila Works in partnership with a MAJOR PUBLISHER is looking for exceptional art talent to contribute to a new experience in the new IP universe. Teamwork, innovation, attention-to-detail and unbridled passion are characteristics we look for in all of our artists. If you feel you have what it takes, throw your hat in the ring
Bonus Qualifications:[...] Experience with Unreal Engine. Understanding of UE4
Our take on this news: We think the publisher will more than likely be Microsoft, since they were also the ones who published Deadlight. As for the game… might it be a sequel to it? The ending sure left us wanting more. For our full review, go right here.

Vlad Pintea would like a sequel to Deadlight. It wasn’t the best game he played, but the atmosphere was great, and the overall package was enjoyable.

The developers of Blacklight, a futuristic free-2-play FPS, Zombie Studios, have announced their new project.
The game will be a psychological thriller one, it is expected for it to come out in the second quarter of 2013, and it’s only for the PC. What’s more important, is that it’ll use Epic’s new engine, Unreal Engine 4. Here’s what the creative studio head, Jared Gerritzen, had to say about it:
We have used Unreal Engine technology for almost a decade and after previewing Unreal Engine 4 at this year’s Game Developers Conference, we knew we would be building our next games on it. Epic has provided a wholly new kind of foundation for artists and designers. We’ve been able to work in ways we have only dreamed about with UE4, which will be a fundamental benefit to our studio as we move into the next generation of games and take our studio to the next level
In related news, Epic head of North American licensing, Joe Kreiner, stated the following:
For years Zombie has achieved great results with our technology and tools, and their enthusiasm for UE4 is infectious. UE4 is a next-gen engine in terms of workflow, productivity and scalability – not to mention the creative freedom it gives developers. We can’t wait to see Zombie’s vision for its newest project come full circle
Zombie is the second studio to license the new engine, the first one being Square Enix. This is also the second game (that we know of) which will use the new Unreal Engine, the first one being Epic’s Fortnite, available for the PC sometimes next year. Zombie Studios’ upcoming thriller will also be released around 2013.
