Epic: No Exclusive for PS3

Epic: No Exclusive for PS3

Epic Games [Gears of War] Vice President Mark Rein says that they will not be doing a Playstation 3 exclusive. Mark Rein stated;

“I think that bird has flown the coop already on PlayStation 3 – they’re not making launch titles any more, and we couldn’t just start up a game tomorrow as an exclusive because it takes a few years.”

He Goes on to say;

“We are doing games for PS3 – Unreal Tournament – but I think the opportunity to do an exclusive has passed. I don’t see Sony offering us a really great deal today to make that ass-kicking PlayStation 3 game, because by the time we finished, there would already be hundreds of great games on the platform. Gran Turismo, Killzone – they’ll be on the sequels to those games by the time our game would come out, so it’s just a timing thing. For the next generation? Anything could happen… But that’s five, six, seven, eight, nine years away, nobody even knows that yet.”
