Next generation consoles, or high-end platforms, will offer a gamers a ‘substantial leap over the current generation’ according to Epic founder Tim Sweeney.
You'd hope so, too. Speaking in the latest issue of Edge magazine, Sweeney talks in detail on the work that Epic is currently conducting on its next-gen engine, the Unreal Engine 4.
Sweeney believes that the current crop of high-end PCs are ‘representative' of what players should expect, but when the next generation of consoles actually arrives it will be a ‘substantial leap’ over the experiences we have today.
“We’re more enthusiastic now than ever about the future of high-end platforms,” explained Sweeney.
“What we’re doing on high-end PCs is going to be representative of the future consumer gaming experience and it’s going to be awesome. It’s going to be a substantial leap over the current generation.”
