Unreal Engine 4 Already Running on “Xbox 8”

on May 13, 2012 3:00 PM

With Windows 8 coming soon, it’d almost make sense for Microsoft to do something as lame as calling the new console Xbox 8 to emphasize the growing ties between PC and Console. What may be even more interesting then the name though is the confirmation that Unreal Engine 4 is already up and running on it.¬†Microsoft has denied that there will be a console reveal at E3 this year, but hopefully we’ll know more soon.

Meanwhile,¬†Epic Games Vice President Mark Rein was at the DICE summit saying that they’ve already got Unreal Engine 4 going on the new console, which they can’t name. If Epic Games has a fully working prototype then hopefully a full reveal of the console can’t be too far away.
