Epic Games currently not making any games for the Vita

GB : Epic games president, Mike Capps in an interview with GI Biz has revealed that they aren't doing any games for the Vita currently. This is a bit baffling because, they already had the dev kits early and also created an engine, which was demoed earlier this year.

That is baffling. Why not start by just porting infinity Blade and see what the reception is like, at the very lest.

They probably want to see if it will be successful or not.

Sounds very similiar to the dev pov for the 3DS...

What exactly has Epic done for the PSP, and what has Unreal Engine done for the PS3.

Batman is the only standout game of the Unreal Engine on PS3 everything else is passable thus far.

Epic is not a developer I think of when I think of buying a PlayStation console.

except for the graphics, infinity blade sucks. it only exists because of the lack of buttons, they would never make the same game on the vita since they'd purposefully have to ignore all the better control options

but they probably make way more money on the iOS anyway, with a lot smaller developing expenses.

You can't play infinity blade without a touch screen and infinity blade is impossible on 3ds. The game has great controls. Don't become a close minded blind moronic asshole cause it's on a touch screen

Actually, Infinity Blade is the ONLY game I have ever played where touch screen only felt natural for the gameplay. I liked that game very much. Still never got an itouch because it still wouldn't be worth getting for only one game.

Infinity Blade is designed exclusively for touch screen only devices or in other words apart from graphics it sucks.

I can understand from a business point of view why they would support Vita with the Unreal engine. However not having their Mobile/Downloadable game studio Chair Entertainment not work on a Vita title seems like a bad decision.

It is Epic's decision after all and if they believe that not making a game for Vita is in their best interest than by all means continue whatever it is your making.

This is a disappointment, indeed. Thank the heavens that Vita already has a splendid launch lineup, along with more intriguing titles to come. Give me Vita now, damnit!

Kran2928d ago

Why would they? They prefer the 360 and iPhone. Or is that just Cliff? :/

fluffydelusions2928d ago

It's possible they just want to see how well of a reception it gets. 360/iOS already have a large and established user base.

i think this and the vita is fighting with mobiles for the handheld gaming marketshare and from what i heard 3 hours battery life isn't that good. I long back to the day where i could play almost 20 hours with my GBA.

I think that is stupid not supporting vita this early,at least make a port of infinity blade because this what they said about vita,I understand that this a business but on top of Sony promoting ps vita it needs to have content for people to purchase it in the first place,Epic games motto is "work smarter not harder",by releasing an existing ip on vita they show support and can gradually work their way up,I feel this is what kills ps move like vita it is easy to use and third party devs only needed to experiment first before going all out. @2:23
