Epic Leaving PCs Behind
After making some rather controversial comments about the current state of the PC gaming and graphics market, it seems that Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has decided to distance himself from the PC gaming world: Unreal Engine 4.0 will be "exclusively target the next console generation."
Thus, PC development for this engine won't begin until it had been put out for the 360's and PS3's successors.  He even said, "if Nintendo ships a machine with similar hardware specs, then that [will also be supported before the PC]."
This doesn't bode well for the PC gaming world and makes you wonder why Epic joined the PC Gaming Alliance if this had been planned.
What will happen to the PC gaming world now that such a powerful player appears to have pulled out?
