No Unreal Engine 4 support for Wii U, PS3 or Xbox 360 says Epic Games
Yesterday at GDC 2013, Mark Rein has confirmed that Unreal Engine 4 will not be supporting Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360. In a Q&A session at GDC, Mark Rein was asked, "whether Unreal Engine 4 will run on Wii U or not?"
To this Rein directly replied: "NO". He further went on to explain that, "I mean, sorry, [that's] not really a correct answer. Have we Unreal Engine 3 for the Wii U. Right? And Unreal Engine 3 is powering all kinds of amazing games, still, lots of games are being made with Unreal Engine 3. We announced today about a new Unreal Engine 3 license,"
"Unreal Engine 3 doesn't disappear because of Unreal Engine 4. But our goal for Unreal Engine 4 console-wise is next-gen consoles. That's really what our energies are focused on. If you want to make a Wii U game, we have Unreal Engine 3, and it's powering some of the best games on the Wii U already,"
After GDC Q&A, Rein further clarified to IGN, "Unreal Engine 4 - we're not PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii U. It's next-gen technology. That's what we're aiming for,"
"The truth is, if a developer wanted to take an Unreal Engine game and put it on Wii U, they could, Unreal Engine 3 is kicking ass on Wii U. The best games on Wii U are made on our technology. What more do you want from us?"
