Nintendo's next generation console will not receive support from Epic's upcoming tech
Nintendoís next generation console will not be supported by the upcoming Unreal Engine 4, it has been revealed.
UE4 is the next-generation of Epicís very popular development engine. Its incompatibility with Wii U effectively locks Nintendoís machine out of a wealth of third party multiplatform content.
The confirmation came from SpikeTV host Geoff Keighley, who said on Twitter that Epicís Mike Capps confirmed the news at GDC in March.
Wii U will, however, be supported by the currently common Unreal Engine 3. But if UE4 gains the same popularity as UE3, Nintendoís platform could once again struggle to court the same level of third party support and Microsoft and Sonyís machines.
