During GDC 2013, Rein asked whether or not the engine work in the console: “Hahaha No,” was his response . Apparently the room also laughed with the response and Rein continued: “I mean, sorry, that’s not really the right answer. We have the Unreal Engine 3 on Wii U and the engine continues to possess all kinds of powerful tools to create amazing games. The Unreal Engine 3 will not disappear because there is Unreal Engine 4, but our goal with this is the next generation of consoles. That’s where our energies are focused. If you want to make a game for Wii U have the Unreal Engine 3. No controversy, “ended the co-founder of Epic Games, Mark Rein.
