Epic's Next Unreal Engine to be Shown to Private Audiences at the Upcoming Game Developers Conference
As you know, the Unreal Engine 3 is one of today's most prolific pieces of technology in the gaming world. It powers everything from Mortal Kombat and Asura's Wrath to Gears of War 3 to even Batman: Arkham City. If you're one of the few developers that uses Epic's engine, the upcoming 2012 Game Developers Conference will have a private viewing of the next generation of Unreal Engines in action. As for us in the general public, we will have to wait a bit.
As seen here at Joystiq, the studio that brought you Gears of War will be showcasing the Unreal Engine 4 to select audiences of "licensees, partners and prospective customers" behind closed doors at the conference. Demonstrations are by appointment only, and those who are lucky enough to see them have to sign a strict and secured non-disclosure agreement. Meaning no cameras, no talking about it outside of the conference or even the screening room, no leaking of the demonstrations, nothing at all. Once you leave Epic's prescence, you say nothing about it, and don't talk about it anymore unless in private meetings among those who saw the new engine with you.
