We know that Epic Games is working on something, but whatever that something is, it won't be released in 2010. While discussing the company's near-term focus at the Game Developers Conference last week in San Francisco, Epic Games VP Mark Rein clarified what 2010 means for his studio.
"We don't have any games coming out in 2010," said Rein, "so from a games standpoint, it's more about our customers' games, right? Already this year we've seen some pretty great games this year -- Mass Effect 2, BioShock 2...and Arkham Aslym's coming out in 3D, the GOTY [game of the year] version, so that'll be kinda cool."
Epic Games subsidiary People Can Fly is developing a currently mysterious shooter for Electronic Arts (rumored to be named Bulletstorm), which EA recently revealed as being targeted for a release sometime early next year. Rein's statement does seem to rule out a surprise release date for Gears of War 3, Shadow Complex 2, or whatever else Epic Games might be cooking out in North Carolina.
