“We have a couple other major franchises that we’ve not been paying attention to. It’s been a long time since we shipped an Unreal game, and it’s an awfully loved franchise that we hold pretty dear here. We haven’t been giving it the attention it deserves because we’ve been focusing on Gears of War and we’re still a relatively small company. We’ve been sort of focused on making new properties, which you’ve seen with Shadow Complex, BulletStorm and Infinity Blade, but sometimes I think just as a businessman that maybe we should be spending some more time with our existing franchises.” Epic President Mike Capps to IndustryGamers.

Epic boss Mark rein reckons there are distant plans to create another single-player Unreal. Remember them?
“I’m sure that at some point in our future we will make another Unreal, single-player, story-driven game. I’m sure at some point there will be one,” he told Eurogamer. However, “There are no plans to do one today.”
Rein added, by way of explanation as to why another story-based Unreal had been so long coming: “We make good money on Unreal Tournament, and it’s a good game that we love to make, and it’s not a five-year-long production and it’s a great test-bed for lots of cool things that we want to do. We like making this type of game, and we have Gears of War as our kind of vanguard, single-player graphic showcase type of game.”
