Epic Games Is Working On A New IP, First Concept Art Revealed, Has Nothing To Do With The Samaritan Tech Demo

Polygon revealed today that Epic Games is currently working on an unannounced title that will most probably be powered by Unreal Engine 4. In addition, Polygon shared a concept art from what seems to be a character from that unannounced title.

The concept art was unveiled during the GDC 2014 speech of Epic’s lead animator, Jay Hosfelt. As Polygon claimed, ‘Hosfelt’s panel explained Epic’s new game prototyping process, using its new IP as its case study.’

Now before jumping around like little kids, do note that although the character resembles the one featured in the Samaritan tech demo, this unannounced game has nothing to do with that tech demo.

According to Epic’s Paul Meegan, this unannounced project is entirely new and has nothing to do with the Samaritan demo.

In short, Epic is working on an unannounced game that will be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and this may – or may not – be its first concept art. Still – and even if this is indeed a concept art from the game – this new title will not be related to the Samaritan tech demo.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
