I am unsure what to make of Epics forthcoming game Fortnite because I haven't seen any game play and in depth description of it. That said, Epic's Cliff Bleszinksi said something at Comic Con today that made me think about gaming and how things move:

"We're here and we're announcing that this is a PC-designed game, it's shipping exclusively for the PC," he told a crowd of attendees."

"Next-gen's here. It's been here. It's a high-end PC," Bleszinski said. He added that the dudebro-free Fortnite didn't "make sense" for Unreal Engine 3, and cheered PCs as being part of Epic's "heritage.""

Epic has been a primarally console based developer for the last few years and in the case of Gears, XBox only. Its cool to hear them make a choice about the PC as a first class citizen. I wonder how many other developers will push PC ahead of consoles now that the consoles lag so far behind in terms of graphics?

It's a game by Epic still in alpha. Heard it would be released sometime next year.
