Mark Rein: Unreal Engine 4 to “Shock” Gamers in 2012

Vice President of Epic Games, Mark Rein confirmed that the official unveiling of Unreal Engine 4 will take place sometime later this year. As one might expect, the guys over at Epic are pretty certain that their new engine will knock your socks off.

Speaking to G4TV at this year’s DICE Summit, Rein teased the debut of their new technology, saying:

People are going to be shocked later this year when they see Unreal Engine 4 and how much more profound an effect it will have.

Considering the unbelievable track record of the studio and their current position within the industry, it’s hard to imagine Epic failing to blow us away. Then again,when looking at how amazing games already look, they’re really going to need to pull some serious punches if they want to “shock” the gaming world.

Several months ago, word had it that Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 was set to launch sometime in 2014. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get a sneak peak at what Epic has in store for the future of gaming.
