Epic Games is working on a new first person shooter that's said to be a triple-A game, but it's not necessarily part of their famed Unreal series.
During a talk at a developer conference this week, Epic's Tim Sweeney confirmed the company is working on an "unannounced triple-A shooter" game. This is beyond smaller projects the company has recently been trialing.
It's probably safe to bet though that this new AAA game will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4
and that won't really be out on any gamer's systems for at least another calendar year.
With Unreal Engine 3 now being on Linux
, Epic Games historically having their games ported to Linux with the notable exception of Unreal Tournament 3, and more game companies caring about Linux
, hopefully this unannounced triple-A game will see a Linux debut.
