Epic Games has announced the dates of a new event for European Unreal Engine developers. Unreal Fest Europe will take place between April 24th - 28th, with further details being announced over the next two weeks. From what we hear the event will live up to its name, with all sorts of festivities alongside an opportunity for networking and learning from high profile speakers and peers.
All of these things are to be revealed, so in the meantime consider this a save the date. This is an event that will be well worth carving some time for if you’re an Unreal Engine developer. With more studios and indies adopting the engine, that’s an increasingly large number of you.
“Over the past two years there has been a rapid growth of developers using Unreal Engine 4," said Mike Gamble, European territory manager at Epic Games. "Major studios create stunning games using Unreal, but increasingly smaller teams and individuals have joined the fold. The time is right to launch a comprehensive event that enables professional European UE4 developers to gather, learn and share."
