Rein Once Again Teases BHG's Epic IP Game

At the Develop Conference in Brighton, England, Mark Rein once again mentioned that the people absorbed in the Big Huge Games dissolution are working on an Epic Games IP. Here I am going to fantasize that it is based on a beloved PC IP, from which a popular engine draws its name.

During the interview he also touched on the iPhone 3GS demo they did awhile back featuring Unreal Tournament 3, calling it a "twin stick shooter". Two steps forward and one step back, Mr. Rein.

No wonder he cannot manage to hit a raptor with a shock rifle; he keeps trying to do it with "twin sticks".

Seems like a waste of talent to have them "help" on a project that was already scoped and dated...
