Epic to reveal new IP at GDC 2011
Well we are all aware of the botched GoW3 announcement at this year’s VGA’s but apparently Epic is planning on announcing something big at next year’s GDC in February.
In a interview in the latest issue of EGM, Cliff Bleszinksi shares new information about Epic’s latest project and it’s a new IP that shall be revealed in early 2011. Though Cliff doesn’t reveal much about the title, he does mention that everyone should keep their “eyes peeled at GDC” and that Prototype’s lead designer Eric Holmes is working on the project. Originally, the game was mostly Bleszinki’s idea, but since taking on Holmes, the project has become more of Holmes’ project as a result. With Homles at the healm, could it lead to an open-world type game or will it be something no one expects?
Cliff later goes into additional details about the new IP stating: “I believe game designers are the Stan Lees and Jack Kirbys of our day, and we’re creating these universes that leave a huge impact on people. Gamers votes with their dollars and they often like established IP, but those IPs came from somewhere, right? Call of Duty was crafted by the original Medal of Honor guys. Gears of War was crafted by the original Unreal Tournament guy. I look forward to creating what’s next.”
