Epic to Focus on Console Gaming

Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski has said that the studio is focusing on producing console titles for the time being, claiming PC gaming is currently in "disarray".

"I think people would rather make a game that sells 4.5 million copies than a million and Gears is at 4.5 million right now on the 360," he told MTV Multiplayer.

"I think the PC is just in disarray... What’s driving the PC right now is Sims-type games and WOW and a lot of stuff that’s in a web-based interface. You just click on it and play it. That’s the direction PC is evolving into."

"For me, the PC is kind of the secondary part of what we’re doing," confirmed Bleszinski. "It’s important for us, but right now making AAA games on consoles is where we’re at."

Bleszinski declined to name said games, refusing to be drawn on a much-rumoured sequel to the multi-million selling global hit Gears of War. However, he did say Epic is sticking to making games for the demographic it’s familiar with.
