Epic’s rumoured Kinect title seems to have been shelved, but the Unreal Engine developer has something fancy in the works for the PC elite.

Speaking at a panel at PAX East 2012, as reported by GamesIndustry, Epic president Mike Capps and Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski both made mention of a “PC-only” game currently in the works.

No further details were given; Epic’s refusal to elucidate suggests the pair weren’t talking about Fortnite, which was announced during the 2011 Spike VGAs but is yet to be confirmed for any particular platforms.

Meanwhile, another enigmatic Epic title will apparently never see release. Gamespot asked Bleszinski about Gears of War: Exile, long rumoured to be a Kinect-based spin off to the popular shooter franchise, and while the designer couldn’t confirm the motion control whispers, he did shed a little light on the matter.

“Let’s just bury the hatchet now. Gears of War: Exile was an unannounced game that I can’t give any details about that has since been cancelled,” he said.
