Epic was once best known for Unreal Tournament, the chaotic shooter built off the company's titular engine. Times have changed, however, and Epic's name is now tied to Gears of War, their third-person shooter exclusive to Microsoft's platform. But according to president Mike Capps, Epic has no less than five games in development; and they have nothing to do with Marcus Fenix or the Locust.
"It's nice to target the PC again as the primary platform," Capps told Eurogamer in a candid chat at GamesCom. "Not just for ports," he added. Epic recently teased the next-generation of their Unreal Engine with the Samaritan demo, similar to how the last engine debuted with the as-yet-unannounced Gears of War demo, suggesting the former might be an in-the-works project at Epic.
Epic have also promised to reward Unreal Tournament fans with a new game in the future, and their partnership with Chair - who developed XBLA title, Shadow Complex, and Infinity Blade for the iPhone - and People Can Fly - who worked on Painkiller and more recently Bulletstorm - mean Epic have a lot their not quite ready to show yet, it would seem.
