Just a few years ago, Epic Games was thought of as mostly a PC game developer. However the massive success of the developer's Gears of War franchise for the Xbox 360 console has turned that perception around for many gamers. Indeed some recent comments by Epic President Mike Capps said Epic has moved more into console games "because the money's on console." However, Rock Paper Shogun has a brief chat with Epic Games VP Mark Rein who assures the interviewer that the company is still committed to the PC game industry.
Rein points out that Epic released and continues to update the free Unreal Development Kit, saying, "If you look at all the UDK games they're PC only at this point." And of course there's Bulletstorm, the upcoming first person shooter that Epic is developing with People Can Fly. Rein states, " . . . you'll see when it comes out, it will be a full-blown, oh-my-god amazing PC game." Ultimately Rein states, "So now the opportunity is swinging back the other way, the opportunity to show that we're still the PC company. And honestly I think Bulletstorm and UDK are firmly establishing us in the PC realm as still the big player there."
