Tekken Goes Next-Gen, Will Utilize The Unreal Engine 4
Yup, another Tekken is coming.
Various sources have reported that during the EVO 2014 fighting competition, Tekken 7 was announced. The logo flashed on one of the projection monitors at the event, and then IGN posted this AOL video.
The latest installment will take advantage of the Unreal Engine 4, and series executive producer and game director Katsuhiro Harada has said they can "rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it." He heaps more praise upon the engine, saying it's powerful and easy to use, and lets them put Tekken 7 "on any platform we desire." Publisher Bandai Namco hasn't issued an official date, nor do we know the confirmed platforms, but that information should arrive soon.
There was a time early on during the previous generation when I thought the fighting genre was done. ...I was wrong.
