Inifinity Blade, Not Shipping to Android Anytime Soon
Unless Android devices get standardized specs, it's very unlikely that Epic Awesome's Infinity Blade is coming to the Android OS.
Bad news Android-followers. The epic and awesome gaming company, Epic Awesome, has announced that they have no plans of bringing the award-winning RPG – Infinity Blade – to the Google Android OS anytime soon.
The reason? Epic Awesome believed that the only a few Android OS devices are capable of delivering the best Infinity Blade experience, unlike iOS users where the game runs at the same, consistent quality.
Epic executive, Mark Rein, elaborates that “When a consumer gets the phone and they wanna play a game that uses our technology, it’s got to be a consistent experience, and we can’t guarantee that [on Android]. That’s what held us off of Android.” It’s called the “Android fragmentation” according to Rein.
He further explains that at the moment, the Apple iOS environment is “the best place to make money” in the realm of smartphone gaming. Although there are already games on the Android that uses Epic’s Unreal Engine, the developer believes that it’s not ready to share its prized stallion to the Google OS. Sorry Androiders.
Infinity Blade is an action RPG sword-fighting game for iPhone, iPad and iPod. It’s the first mobile game powered by Epic’s cutting-edge Unreal Engine 3 technology. The game takes handheld gaming to new heights with gorgeous visuals, adrenaline-fueled battles and advanced character progression in a fully 3D castle realm.View Article Source »
