The lights are on
Although some fans may be disappointed that Epic Games has cancelled Gears of War: Exile, there's news that the company is currently working on a PC-only project.
Joystiq reports that company president Mike Capps and lead designer Cliff Bleszinski told a panel at PAX East that Epic is working on a PC-only title that Joystiq says is previously unannounced.
We presume then that Fortnite is not the game in question (although its platforms haven't been officially announced), as that was debuted last year on the VGAs.
Could this be a return to the roots for the Unreal franchise or something else entirely?

*** YEAH! Finally some PC love.
i really want more Gears
finally a PC exclusive from a major developer that isnt an MMO (hopefully).
Could be either Unreal or an IP. Up in the air at this point.
F2P Unreal Tournament?
I don't really know why, but Epic just doesn't do much for me. I really have tried to enjoy their games, and I did like Gears, liked Gears 2 less and didn't even finish Gears 3, which is pretty unlike me.
As others have noted, I would think this is a promotional game for the new engine version. I will say the tiny bit of Fortnite I have seen has me interested.
I would have loved to play the gears series, even bought some of them but the rodi makes me so nauseated! I don't know what it is about it, but man I can't handle that camera. I have no issues with motion in any other games.
I hope they've seen the new consoles and realised they can't run the Samaritan on it so they're making it a pc exclusive.
