Unreal Engine 4 confirmed for GDC

Unreal Engine 4 will be revealed at next week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Epic Games has confirmed.

The company will not, however, be showing off its new technology to all attendees; only select licensees, partners and prospective customers will be allowed to see the next-generation Unreal Engine, and those that do will be bound by NDA – which makes sense following Mark Rein's admittance earlier this month that UE4 was up and running "on systems I can't talk about by name."

Happily, the company will be busy with a host of sessions open to all attendees. Staff including director of production Rod Fergusson, founder and CTO Tim Sweeney and design director Cliff Bleszinski will be taking part in 15 separate sessions during the four-day event.

Bleszinski will also host the Game Developers Choice Awards, the annual awards show which takes place on the Wednesday evening. GDC runs from March 5 to 9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco; for more on Epic's plans for the event, follow the source link below.
