Unreal Engine 4 likely to be announced along with PlayStation 4

Mar 12, 2012, News , PS4 By Debabrata Nath

Epic’s next edition of Unreal Engine 4 is likely to be announced alongside the announcement of next-gen console hardware, a veteran analyst has predicted.

The demo which was shown behind closed doors at GDC last week hinted at next-gen tech.

EEDAR President and CEO Greg Short said that it’s likely that Epic will announce the version alongside the announcement of PlayStation 4 or the next Xbox.

Short told Nowgamer -

From a marketing standpoint it would stand to reason that any announcement around Unreal 4 or other major upgrades to engine middleware providers will occur very closely to the announcement of new hardware.

Since the majority of new features will be designed to maximise these devices they would not be able to promote that fact until the hardware itself had been unveiled.

Jones also added, “Everyone will be looking to E3 this year to see what is announced (if anything!).”

Epic also promised that the public will get to see more of Unreal engine 4 later this year.

It would be interesting to see the PlayStation 4 make full use of the Unreal Engine 4. What do you say?

    That Is NOT The PS4. The Remote Has No Dualshock Analong Sticks. Impossible.

     All present pictures that are shown as PS4 are fanmade pictures or the white “Sony box” is just a DVD player, awww. And this is a video that shows the possibilities of the Unreal Engine 3. it has no relation to PS4 or unreal engine 4, it will be announced this year. You should look at it as a tribute to the genius unreal engine 3

    Can you guys get rid of that hideous representation of what you think the Playstation 4 will be. Seriously it does not look good and I would greatly disappointed with Sony it they chose any design other than something similar to the original design they kept for all Playstations so far. You have no analog sticks on the control (which is a huge thing) and it looks like crap. It would be terrible to hold based on handle length in relation to buttons as well. Unreal Engine looks awesome. But stop posting with that picture, if the Playstation 4 ends up looking something even close to this I will never buy it, that is for sure.
