Heard it on Kevin Pereira's podcast on iTunes today, interesting listen.
www.deathsquad.tv/category/kevin-pereira-pointless/

Other tidbits...

-He can't talk in detail about the Epic split, but is still on good terms with some of them.
-Says he's ready to get back in the game and start his own studio.
-Hopes to use Unreal engine.
-Wants to get back to his roots with this project.
-He also speaks highly of the Oculus so the game will probably have support for that.
-Just speculation on my part for this, but I think Kickstarter might be the route he will go.

PC only arena shooter? Godspeed, Young Clifford. If there's anyone who can help revive the genre, it's you.

Not a tweet, this was straight from his mouth to a pretty well respected industry guy in Kevin P.

If this thread is against the rules than I was unaware. Please lock in that case.

This is one genre that hasn't had a worthwhile resurrection. A good new arena shooter is welcome.

I'm concerned about the Rift comment though. A traditional fast arena shooter simply doesn't work with VR and building an arena shooter with the Rift in mind might not be a good idea.

I just hope it's got some interesting and unique weapon types ala Unreal Tournament. I'm so freaking sick of shooters using modern guns.

PC exclusive. In this context, I can emphatically say fuck gamepads and the various compromises they require. They have their place, but it is not here.
