Remember Fortnite? The Unreal Engine 4-powered zombie tower defense shooter that wasway back in 2011? In the last year or so, there have been no updates about the promising co-op game, which has led some to think it's vaporware or worse, quietly dropped.
Epic refutes the idea, saying that development is going strong on it, and that it's just taken a backseat to Paragon for now.
In anat Games Developer Conference this weekend, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney stated, "We shifted a lot of resources over to Paragon to get that out in an awesome state. We figure we should start with one major successful launch and do one at a time. Fortnite will be next."
He went on to explain, "Fortnite is moving ahead full-speed. It's a game with awesome and complex RPG type systems, and a really interesting meta game around it. It's a game that takes time to get right. It remains a huge priority for Epic, and expect more news to come out over time."
Fortnite was originally announced for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but now only a PC version is planned.
