    Amazing engine!
    Really incredible!

    I would love to see it or part of it under some open source license, even if commercial license and dual license with AGPL.

        Has Unreal now a monopoly in the top notch graphics market? At least in the past there had been the cryengine or red engine etc. AFAIK cdpr wants to use the UE for there upcoming Witcher part. Making their latest engine for cp2077 negligible.

          "More than likely it will be more next-gen Unreal Engine 5 games coming by way of Steam Play."
          Then we don't care about this engine any more, there is nothing to be excited about. I suspect Linux support will be half arsed, and we already know Linux is second class citizen, as release of Linux client did not happen same day. And if no Linux games are coming, well - nothing to be excited about...

            UE4 was total disaster not even close to CryEngine and RedEngine. However, still better than Unity.

              TBH it looks like things are headed that way. Mega publishers still have hi-fi internal engines, but just look how many games that approach has sabotaged so far.

              Custom indie engines keep running into trouble as well. I guess building an engine from scratch is more work and more hazardous than it used to be?

                Let the framedrops and the stutterfest begin. At least the image quality in UE5 is only half as blurry due to some "improvements" in the post-processing algorithms compared to UE4.

                  According to somebody I know who worked full time with UE4, yes.

                    The editor? Can't recall crashing UE4 games unless the hardware was at fault. Fortnite D3D12 mercilessly triggers crashes with unstable hardware, be it RAM timings or GPU clocks.
