VP of Epic Games Talks Gears of War and Unreal Content


The Vice President of Epic Games has confirmed that the new content made available in the PC version of Gears of War will not be made available to Xbox 360 users and that mods for Unreal Tournament III that were previously confirmed for PC and PS3, maybe coming to 360.

In the interview, Mark Rein told OXM that “it’s very unlikely” that the new content available in the PC version of Gears of War will be coming to the 360.

“The two codebases aren’t compatible because we’ve been patching… updating (laughs) the 360 version, so the two codebases are different,” Rein said. “We don’t have the manpower available.”

As for UT3 modded content on 360, Rein said, “To bring mods to 360, we’re going to have to make some serious changes.” Even so, the BeyondUnreal website reveals that Rein admitted that UT3 has been delayed on 360 in order to get the content onto the system.
