Rumor: Epic To Reveal New PS3 Exclusive At E3

As if people weren't talking enough about the impending (and as yet unconfirmed) gigantic announcements at Sony's E3 press conference, we've got another one for you.

As most of you know, Epic Games is responsible for the immensely popular and critically acclaimed Gears of War franchise, but despite any rumors you may have heard, they have no plans to bring it to the PlayStation 3. However, perhaps as an act of contrition (forgive the melodrama), Epic will announce a new exclusive project for Sony's machine at E3. According to Examiner.com, Epic is prepared to reveal a "brand new horror-based title" that will use a "more refined" version of the Unreal Engine 3. Now, you may remember that Unreal Tournament 3 was a timed exclusive for the PS3, but supposedly, this will be exclusive exclusive. The information comes from a "very credible source" but until we hear it directly from the horse's mouth next week, we certainly can't call it official. But it's enough to get people talking simply because Epic is very well respected, and any PS3 exclusive is big news to fans of the console.

Anyway, our list of "what to look out for" at E3 has grown yet again and it's starting to get a little unmanageable. This show needs to happen soon.

Sounds very interesting,But for some reason is hard picturing Epic releasing a game for the PS3 only.

CAN ANYONE say RUMOR overload?!?! I mean I seriously think the only reason why these rumors come up is because they want the views of E3 and people actually going to E3 to go up. HYPE HYPE HYPE. But hey it's all good fun...

If this is true...with all those other big rumors of PS3 exclusives...oh god.....all hell would break lose. I mean...first Kojima...now Epic...and then if by sudden fate SQUARE ENIX...oh boy...that sends shivers down my spine lol. Only ...4 more days though.

An Epic exclusive for PS3. Nice. We'll have to wait and see I guess, but it's great how the PS3 exclusives are popping up all over.

woot....yay...be still my beating heart...

Another - YET another - horror based action game. Oh wow, yay, woo-frakin'-hoo.

Can you tell how superbly disinterested in this genre I am? You can? Good.

Why can't these folks using Unreal engine come up with something other than blood, gore, action and horror? I'm sure lots of people will run around like chickens with their heads cut off at the prospect of this new game. I shall not be one of them.

This could be good, maybe even great. Gears literally made me buy my 360 in the 1st place.

I remember reading that Cliffy B's next game was going to be a horror title. Exclusive or not, it looks like Epic's next game will be a horror title.

Epic is an ok developer, but certainly not the greatest. It seems like this might be a move to combat Gears.

My opinion is - if Sony signs a deal with a third party studio, it should really be Konomi (MGS5).

Still I'm excited to see the new game though.

Nice.... If this is true and not just a rumor then things could get very interesting. I bet M$ won't be very happy with that idea so let's wait and see what's going to happen once it becomes official....
