PROJECT NANO (aka BLUEPRINT) from Epic Games Leaked?

Washington DC, year 2043 in a future that shares elements with other Sci-Fi products. This premise should be enough to present “PROJECT NANO”, a game internally called “Blueprint” by Epic Games.

This title could be the new upcoming franchise from Epic, creators of Gears of War & Unreal.

The artwork is really cool, hope to see more soon.

Kayant3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

Hopefully on the 14 at the playstation event :) The clues are there.

Xandet3676d ago

Considering how much Mark Rein has been hyping the 11/14 Sony event, it wouldn't shock me to see this game officially revealed there with exclusivity of some sort in tow. It's hard to argue that a partnership with Epic would be a monstrous victory for Sony after the impact Gears had on the Xbox community and gaming world as a whole "last" gen.

FungalPsychosis3676d ago

There's been rumors going around that it'll be shown at the Playstation Spike Event on the 14th. Hopefully those are true

Viking_Socrates3676d ago

Will it be coming to the PS4? Hopefully.


Google Considered Joining Forces With Tencent To Buy Epic Games, Court Docs Reveal

The court docs from the Epic vs. Google court case have revealed that Google once thought about teaming up with Tencent to buy Epic Games.

Sgt_Slaughter8d ago (Edited 8d ago )

Last thing we need is Tencent having that big of a presents globally in gaming, especially with Google.

Fishy Fingers8d ago

They already own 40% of Epic. It'll probably the share majority eventually.

Knightofelemia8d ago

Teaming up with Tencent would be the biggest mistake ever.

OtterX8d ago

Gross. Google abandons everything they put their hands on.


Epic Games Set to Return to Court as Antitrust Trial Against Google Begins Today

Epic Games is back in court as their antitrust trial against Google commences today, with Epic hoping to force Google to change policies.

MrWood23d ago

Yeah but I’m sure they will see a big boost again with the ER DLC coming out and hopefully announced next month at The Game Awards. No worries here.

gold_drake23d ago

gold_drake23d ago

not sure going after google is the best of ideas ha.


Layoffs at Epic

Earlier today Tim Sweeney sent the following email to Epic employees:

Hi everyone,
As we shared earlier, we are laying off around 16% of Epic employees. We're divesting Bandcamp and spinning off most of SuperAwesome.

"We are laying off around 830 employees, or 16% of jobs. About two-thirds of the layoffs were in teams outside of core development. Around 250 people are leaving Epic through our divestitures from Bandcamp and SuperAwesome."

Super sad. I hope they will find another job soon.

thorstein62d ago

It really is sad.

Epic Games Profit:

2018: $3.7 billion
2019: $1.83 billion
2020: $1.67 billion
2021: $1.19 billion

You can see how they just couldn't afford them.

Binarycode62d ago


If they are not core teams, then they are not needed.

Developers always get new jobs because it's an art what a dev does imo.

"For a while now, we've been spending way more money than we earn"

That's a joke right? The amount they get off Fornite enough is insane.

Fishy Fingers63d ago (Edited 63d ago )

You'd think that sure, but their profit has been dropping year on year. 2018-2021 they dropped over 60% for example.

These companies arent printing money in the ways we like to think, their overheads are massive.

DaReapa63d ago

Exactly. Not to mention the amount of money they've spent over the years to keep games off of Steam.

VersusDMC63d ago

Some of that loss of money is their fault though...like the lawsuit vs apple. Fortnight still isn't back on apple stores and that game made more than a 1 billion on the apple store.

senorfartcushion62d ago

It's enough to keep certain staff members on

Tapani62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

Exactly. Tim Sweeney's ego got him involved in the Apple lawsuit. He took a great risk, gambled and lost. Now the company, namely people, are suffering from it. That Fortnite one billion USD would have kept the engine going (no pun intended).

This goes to show you cooperate and work together with large companies instead of take them on legally. This is a good morality and reality check to Tim and his leadership team, and hopefully he makes decisions in the future that won't affect the people in the company. He needs to feel the pain of laying off staff (leaders say it is the single most painful experience in their careers) and take the public humiliation. Only then he can regroup and refocus.

I would say that as a leader it is okay to make mistakes and sometimes they cost dearly. We are all people after all.

Fortnite generates tons of revenue but probably not as much profit. At least I imagine that those collabs that have been pushing the game for the last couple of years are not cheap.

Then we have all the other fronts where they spend money willy-nilly. They made a bunch of acquisitions, paid millions for PC exclusivity of some games, paid for those free EGS games, lost revenue on EGS coupons, lost money on lawsuits and offered a bunch of grants as well.

Lionsguard63d ago

You also forget that they also give free games every 2 weeks or so. I have 357 free games from them and I only bought 2 with discount coupons.

CrimsonWing6963d ago

Maybe people aren’t spending as much on Fortnite anymore,

DeusFever62d ago

About 9000 employees. Assume an average of about $100,000/year per employee in salary and benefits. That’s at least $1B/year in labor costs. That’s a lot of micro-transactions to buy.
