While Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney says development is still “moving full speed ahead” on Fornite?the company’s fort-building survival game we’ve seen little of since it was announced two years ago?he also noted that we shouldn’t expect to hear more about that game until the free-to-play MOBA-shooter Paragon is out the door.
“We shifted a lot of resources over to Paragon to get that out in an awesome state,” Sweeney said to Game Informer (via GameSpot). “We figure we should start with one major successful launch and do one at a time. Fortnite will be next.”
The gears haven’t come to a complete stop on Fortnite‘s development?Sweeney said that the game is still a “huge priority for Epic.”
“Fortnite is moving ahead full-speed,” he says. “It’s a game with awesome and complex RPG-type systems, and a really interesting meta game around it. It’s a game that takes time to get right. It remains a huge priority for Epic, and expect more news to come out over time.”
Paragon is currently in an open beta for anyone who purchased one of the game’s founder packs. To see how the early build works, check out our hands-on preview.
