Morning Hangover: The Next Epic IP

Posted on December 12, 2010

Gears of War

Epic Games plans on making an announcement at GDC 2011 in only two months. Their announcement, assuming it’s not delayed, will be about a brand new IP. For the video game lingo noobs out there an IP is an intellectual property. Epic primarily make over-the-top shooters with characters whose arms are the size of tree trunks, and I’m 100% okay with that. Gears of War 2 is probably my most frequently played game. When I read that a new IP was on the way I figured it would be more of the same but then G4tv reader blueboykc suggested Epic might be working on a superhero game. The cards line-up, in a recent interview Cliff Bleszinski talked about the influences of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, luminaries in the comic superhero world. Cliff also confirmed that Prototype‘s lead designer would be in charge of this project. Prototype was somewhat of a dark anti-supehero story. Could Epic be making their own superhero game? Can you fly if your arms are the size of trees? I hope so!

What do you think Epic is working on?
