When Epic Games announced today that it had sold its popular Gears of War franchise to Microsoft, some saw it as news of Epic leaving development and focusing only on its Unreal Engine licensing and government contract businesses.
This isn't the case, Epic Games PR managers have said.
"For people saying Epic isn't making games anymore, we currently have multiple games in development, including Fortnite," Phillips said on Twitter today. Another PR manager at Epic, Dana Cowley, said much the same: "We're still making games, don't worry."
Fortnite, a PC-exclusive survival game, is Epic Games' only announced project right now. Asked to name another project the studio is working on, Phillips said, "#secrets." Some of Epic's other franchises include Infinity Blade, Unreal Tournament, and Shadow Complex.
Chinese Internet behemoth Tencent owns 40 percent of Epic Games and has two seats on the company's board of directors.
