An Epic vision of the next generation | Podcast

Latest episode available to download now, discussing Unreal Engine 5, next-gen Fortnite and PlayStation Studios

Matt, Rebekah, Chris and James gather around their mics to discuss the biggest stories of the past week - primarily Epic Games.

The company debuted the first footage of Unreal Engine 5 with a technical demo that also gave us the first glimpse of gameplay on the Playstation 5.

Around this unveiling was also the news that the revenue limit at which Epic will claim royalties from Unreal-powered games has been raised to $1 million, and plans for the Epic Online Services SDK, which will enable other developers to implement cross-play into their titles.

You can read more in our full interview with Epic's Tim Sweeney, Kim Libreri and Nick Penwarden.

Plus, Fortnite is heading to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 at launch, so we discussed the potential for current multiplayer hits on the next generation of consoles.

We also touched upon the new PlayStation Studios branding and how the platform holder will create a stronger identity for its first-party titles.
