Epic Games making 5 new games

GDC Europe: Gears Dev Working on 5 New Games

What's next after the conclusion of Gears of War?

"On September 20, developer Epic Games will release Gears of War 3, the
conclusion to the Xbox 360's exclusive shooter trilogy. What does Epic
have planned after that? Quite a lot, actually.

At a talk during the Game Developers Conference Europe today, Epic's
President, Mike Capps, revealed the developer is already working on five
new games. The projects are currently in various stages of prototyping
and development. No specific titles or details were revealed, although
Capps did confirm that these games are unrelated to the Gears of War
franchise.

Epic is returning to its roots, in a way: it is targeting the PC as the
primary platform for these new endeavors. During the '90s, Epic made PC
games almost exclusively and only began focusing on consoles -- and
particularly the Xbox 360 -- in the last decade with Gears of War.

During today's talk, Capps explained that Epic finished developing Gears
of War 3 early and enjoyed having plenty of time to polish it
excessively and begin work on new projects."

All I am hoping for is a Shadow Complex 2.

Going from Gears of War to 5 completely separate games seems like they are spreading themselves a little thin. This gives me pause as to what the quality of these games will be like

Will Epic Games ever bring Jazz Jackrabbit back to life after long years?

They have a couple of studios to distribute the workload. For all you know, maybe the majority of the games are iOS or XBLA so you don't need as much resources?

new unreal tournament perhaps? Q-Q

Yeah - a new Unreal Tournament seems likely . Chair also mentioned Shadow Complex 2 will happen , also I doubt Gears 3 is gonna be the last of that series, (considering how popular it is.)

-

I think Bulletstorm 2 will happen - but does that count as one of the 5 ?

Bulletstorm wasn't an Epic made game, mate, though they did have a bit to do with developement. It was actually created by People Can Fly, who are owned by Epic.
