Am I the only one who thinks that an engine supplier directly competing with its own customers by releasing similar games is a bit suspect? Also probably not the wisest business decision?

Games press is largely handling it as if it's not a big deal and as if Bluehole and Player Unknown are babies for complaining about other people eating their lunch. Well they are being whiny bitches about their competition but being a whiny bitch doesn't necessarily mean you're wrong. I wondered why EA is pushing Frostbite so hard and while having their own engine makes a lot of financial sense for a publisher that is as big as EA, they're also no longer feeding info and company internals to the competition.

Why would I be willing to work with Epic and use their Unreal engine when that cooperation poses the risk of directly feeding valuable improvements, business internals and design knowledge to a potential competitor? Worse even paying them license fees for the engine that they then can use to release the competing product as free to play.

Yes Epic is now probably making all of the money with Fortnite so they got lucky this time but suppose the Fortnite battle royale mode hadn't been the success it was, why jeopardize your own business model and potentially drive away customers?

You're literally the only one. See, everyone else remembers Source and how all the best Source games came from Valve.

Also both engines are free as in beer. So.

It'll probably just be some VR horseshit. Not exactly what I needed in my walking simulators.

Wild West Online, the latest shit game cash grab from Sergey Titov (even thought they deny he's involved), the same man that brought you WarZ/Aftermath/Infestation and the legend that is Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, is now available on Steam.  Having only been in development for about a year, I wouldn't be too optimistic about it, esp. with a $30 price tag. awesome, for real

Well, if you ever wanted to go to Austria but couldn't afford it, you can now do so via VR horseshit.

Edit: Or maybe not.  Says it was released 03 Apr. 2018 but I don't see a way to access the game.
