It’s been a while since our last check on Epic Games, don’t you think? Well, we don’t know if this is good or bad news, but it seems that the studio behind Unreal Tournament and Gears Of War is currently working on a new title (and no, we’re not talking about Fortnite). Spotted by Reddit’s member ‘ekim1’, this forum page clearly hints at ‘something’ that is in beta phase and is called Rocket.
Epic Games has not commented on anything at the moment, but this may very well be our first ‘look’ at Epic’s next project. That, or this ‘Rocket’ thing is something regarding Epic’s forum. But that seems unlikely, so Rocket should be the code-name of what the team is currently working on.
Let’s also not forget that PAX Prime is almost upon us.
Is Epic Games gearing up for an announcement of a new IP? We’ll soon find out!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
