Tim Sweeney confirms there's interest in porting Unreal Engine 4 to Windows Phone and RT
When the time is right, Epic will make its Unreal Engine 4 platform available on Windows Phone and Windows RT. Exactly when that time will be is still up in the air, but thanks to a forum post in which Epic co-founder and CEO Tim Sweeney responded to a user question, we at least know it's something the company is both interested in and has been working towards to some degree.
Epic Games has posted preview notes on its upcoming 4.1 update for the Unreal Engine 4. The pending update has a plethora of new features, assets, new platform supports, and a ton of fixes and improvements to the game engine.
