Epic, Microsoft, and You

Beyond Unreal contacted Epic's Tim Sweeney to ask what effect that Epic and Microsoft's new publishing deal will have on future games and the operating systems they work on. Here's what he had to say:

UT2004 is on track for release for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, published by Atari. Atari and its corporate predecessors Infogrames and GT have always done a great job of publishing Epic's games. They'll continue to have our full support and we'll have theirs.

Two future Epic games are signed with Microsoft. These games haven't been announced yet, so it's a way too early to lay out a platform roadmap, but Epic has always done the right thing when it comes to supporting popular computer and OS platforms, and there's no reason to assume that's going to change now.

I hope this remains true. Thankfully, Epic is the kind of company that can pretty much dictate its own terms.
