Epic’s back at it again reiterating that they won’t be focusing on Android for the time being. The tune hasn’t changed much since the last time we heard from Epic when Mark Rein said they were thinking about Android support in their game development engine but didn’t consider it a top priority.
This time, Tim Sweeney has gone on record saying that great looking games like Infinity Blade won’t come to Android because they can’t guarantee a quality experience for every device.
Even if targeting high-end devices with the latest in chipset technology, Sweeney points the finger at carrier and OEM customization as reasons why a game might be better on one phone as opposed to another with similar specs.
That’s just one of many reasons why Google wants to help standardize Android and the hardware surrounding it with new initiatives put into place recently. While we’re not terribly hurt by this news (it really isn’t a surprise), it does sting a bit and does well to make us realize that there are still some patches of grass that aren’t as green as we’d like them to be.
