    Also, Unreal without CliffyB, I'm skeptical.

    I'm super excited, seemed like this would never happen! :D

    In regards to PC / Consoles..
    I'm actually extremely optimistic - I've been playing around with Unreal Engine 4 for a few weeks, and one thing that strikes me is how it's been designed to accommodate various platforms with such ease.

    From what I've seen, unlike UE3 (I'm looking at you UT3), games will be made for high end PC specs and then other versions would simply be built from that.

    Looks like the era of shitty console to PC ports are over with UE4.. happy days!

    Also, the Shooter Game example that comes with the engine looks amazing compared to the dark clutter of UT3

    Indeed, it will probably even have Linux support out of the box. Joy!

    Also, yea, that video has very strong Mass Effect 1 aesthetics. I'm liking that a lot.

    That doesn't mean Unreal will be like that. Unreal Engine 3 could do both Mirror's edge and UT3 :D

    It does mean that Epic Games as a unit is capable of producing things that are not grungy, however :p

    This news definitely has me stoked XD I wonder if the pics of UT1 in the twitter post hint at it having something to do with UT1 :B

    OH YOU'RE ON FIRE

    Relax. That was a long bloody time ago. And if Fortnite is any indication, it definitely sounds like they were really getting tired of that anyway.

    I've been hearing some talk about a UT/UT2004 remake done in UE4. That sounds kinda awesome to be quite honest.

    I'm not convinced that CliffyB is vital to a good Unreal title. Indeed, after listening to him speak on various podcasts etc, I've begun to think that the series might actually be better off without him.

    That said, I think a lot of the talent that made the original games so great has long left EPIC.

    I think the series would be better off without him too BUT not for the reasons you specified. Cliff has made it known that he's not interested in developing any more sequels to the games he's worked on before. He wants to do his own thing.

    So if his heart's not in it, I wouldn't want him working on his previous titles either.

    I heard him lamenting over the death of the arena shooter, and it sounded like he wanted to make a new one like UT. Maybe that's were either he, or EPIC, should go. Maybe it's better to use a new moniker and let Unreal rest in peace. I really don't want the 'Unreal' brand to start being carelessly thrown around for purely marketing purposes, and disgraced the way 'Age of Empires', 'Diablo' or even 'Far Cry' have been. For example, "Age of Empires Online" was a travesty, and made a mockery of the fine titles that preceded it. They tried to sell that game on borrowed reputation.

    On the other hand, remaking Unreal Tournament could be a mistake too if they don't ship an editor (note that UnrealScript is one of the important features shedded from UE4). I've got bored of the vanilla game some 14 years back

    They are already shipping the editor :D. (at a $20/month steal).

    In one of the dev stream things they were talking about that mod team doing a new unreal tournament, my money is on Epic announcing that they're supporting them.
