Several fresh and exciting game announcements came out of this year’s SPIKE TV Video Game Awards. Most showcased new entries in an already high profile series, some created incredible buzz (check our preview of The Last of Us), while others received only mild applause. Then there was the oddball of the bunch, a quirky, cartoonish, zombie-infested game called Fortnite.
There are two major reasons that Fortnite is likely to stay on the gaming radar until its release, whenever that may be. First is that it’s being developed by Epic Games, a longstanding and respectable studio that has sucked away hundreds of hours of our lives with Unreal, Infinity Blade, and Gears of War, just to name a few. Under the direction of Epic icon Cliff Bleszinski and lead designer Lee Perry, this fresh entry is certainly in capable hands, and we expect nothing less than a perfectly polished product in the end.
