InXile Entertainment Will Be Using Unreal Engine 5 for Its Next AAA Project
Brian Fargo, head of InXile Entertainment, revealed via Twitter that the studio will be using Unreal Engine 5 for the next projects.
Last week, Epic Games officially revealed the next-gen version of its development tech Unreal Engine 5 with a stunningly beautiful demo running on PS5. Now, InXile Entertainment is one of the first developers that confirms they will be using Epic Games’ new engine to give birth to their next-gen AAA project.
While more details around InXile’s next title are yet to be revealed, the studio head, Brian Fargo, confirmed that it will be an RPG game like all of the studio’s products so far. The developers could’ve already started working on the next project if the COVID-19 pandemic wouldn’t force them to push back the release of Wasteland 3. Now, Wasteland 3 is nearly three months away and the team is working hard to deliver the best experience possible, thanks to the resources provided by Microsoft.
We've had quite a few questions about our next gen RPG and can confirm it will use Unreal Engine 5. https://t.co/65jq0ckz5f

With InXile Entertainment working on an RPG game as its next project, Xbox Game Studios will likely deliver a whole lot of first-party RPG titles thanks to the acquired studios over the last few years. Obsidian Entertainment has already confirmed that they will work on the sequel to The Outer Worlds in the future, while their next big project is something else. On the other hand, there are some strong rumors that Playground Games is working on a reboot of the Fable series, as one of the biggest RPG titles coming to Xbox Series X.
During the latest episode of Inside Xbox, we get to see some of the upcoming Microsoft-exclusive titles developed by third-party studios. If the rumors turn out to be true, we will probably get a closer look at Xbox Series X earlier in June, along with a ton of new first-party announcements in July. That said, Microsoft has confirmed that they will provide more information on their next-gen projects every month through the Xbox 20/20 showcase.
