Unreal Engine 4 Won't Support Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, Epic Games Says

Current-gen consoles will have to make due with Unreal Engine 3

The Unreal Engine 4 technology, which has just received a brand new tech demo gameplay video yesterday, won't support current-gen consoles like the Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360, according to developer Epic Games.

Unreal Engine 4 is eagerly awaited by lots of gamers and by many game developers who have already licensed the technology after the different demonstrations organized by Epic Games in the last year or so.

After checking out the stunning Infiltrator tech demo of the Unreal Engine 4, Epic's Mark Rein told developers at GDC 2013 that the new engine won't support current-gen devices like the Nintendo Wii U, the PlayStation 3, or the Xbox 360.

According to IGN, Epic is confident that the current Unreal Engine 3 will still deliver great experiences on these platforms, and it's decided to dedicate the Unreal Engine 4 to the PC, as well as next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4 or the oft-rumored Xbox 720.
