The gaming companies that have signed on to license the amazing Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games are mostly working on new IP (Intellectual Properties) rather than grinding out sequels according to European territory manager for Epic, Mike Gamble.

In an interview with Edge, he stated that the ratio of sequels to new IP is “at least 50/50 if not 70/30 in favour of new stuff.”

I’m relieved to hear this because it means that many gamers will finally get new games to love instead of rehashes of older games with just a new game engine. If there’s one complaint I have about gaming in the 2010s or really gaming in general is the repetitive yearly releases of IP as cash grabs like Madden or Call of Duty.
