But he also says 'are excited to bring UE5 features to life.'
Yeah, I am reading that as: those studios, in the future.

I mean, I'm also not sure why Epic would say those things about it not being available until 2021 if they weren't true, including:

Unreal Engine 5 will be available in preview in early 2021, and in full release late in 2021, supporting next-generation consoles, current-generation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.

They do go on to say:

We’re designing for forward compatibility, so you can get started with next-gen development now in UE4 and move your projects to UE5 when ready.

We will release Fortnite, built with UE4, on next-gen consoles at launch and, in keeping with our commitment to prove out industry-leading features through internal production, migrate the game to UE5 in mid-2021.


This last part is interesting because it means you can re-release a finished UE4 game in UE5.

I assume you are expecting Hellblade 2 to be a launch title? I don't.

We'll see, though. Not long to go.

No, I think it may miss launch too. Actually, that could be a good indicator that it may in fact use UE5 by release. However, according to Epic, the developers don't even have the preview version yet, so what we have seen thus far on any actual games in development must be using UE 4.25... again, according to Epic.

Edit: I guess there is a chance that NT may get an early preview if maybe they are considered a preferred partner? It still kind of compromises their statement, if that's the case.

@ 10+ million subs thusfar? Has to be...
Does it. We have no clue how much they pay third party. Then add in dev cost of games minus actual sales. Operating costs. How many of that 10 million were on $1 promotion, etc.

Iit is more curiosity than anything.

You think they didn't figure everything out?
