Unreal Engine 4 Gets Support for Windows 10 UWP


Quote:
Games based on Unreal Engine 4 can now be launched on Windows 10 as universal apps, as Microsoft has finally added support for this platform recently.

Published on GitHub, the source code is available for all those having an Unreal Engine 4 license and opens the door to more high-quality content that can be released on Windows 10 and available not only on PCs but also on other devices, including here smartphones and Xbox.

“Microsoft has developed Universal Windows Platform (UWP) support for Unreal Engine 4, and has released the source code on GitHub as a fork of Epic Games' UE4 repository. This code is now available to all UE4 licensees under the terms of the UE4 license, which provide for source code redistribution and use,” an announcement posted on the official forums notes.

Ironically, this news comes only a few days after Epic Games’ founder Tim Sweeney blasted Microsoft for the millionth time for trying to kill Steam and offer a closed ecosystem on Windows 10.

I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to being a Red, so I posted this article here instead of making it a main page post, but I do find it funny how Tim Sweeney has been on a rampage about UWP, and then this happens.

Is anyone actively developing a AAA game with UWP in mind?
