Epic Games has bounced back from a period of relative quiet with a string of new Fortnite reveals, and its VR title Couch Knights. However, studio co-founder Tim Sweeney has teased another “high end” game that will “push next generation graphics.”

Speaking with Edge, Sweeney said of the game, “It’s going to push next generation graphics as you’d always expect Epic to do.”

“There’s a lot [of Unreal Engine 4 games] on the way and a large number of them haven’t been announced,” he went on. “You’ll see lots of triple-A stuff coming out over time.”

As for the nature of said games, Sweeney suggested that they may not be triple-a experiences as we know them, saying “The industry’s changing. This generation it seems like there are about a third of the number of triple-A titles in development across the industry as there was last time around – and each one seems to have about three times the budget of the previous generation. I think we’re heading towards a future where triple-A is the minority.”

But what’s the big new Epic game? The smart money’s on a title based on the company’s Infiltrator and Samaritan tech demos, as suggested by this batch of GDC presentation slides.
