Unreal Engine is without a doubt one of the best known development tools on the market having already been the staple source to many triple AAA last-gen games. Now, with update 4.1 to the source code this new and improved tool is loaded to perform well on the Xbox One.

Epic confirmed via their blog:

  • Engine source for Playstation 4 and Xbox One is available to subscribers who are registered developers with Microsoft or Sony, respectively.
  • For now, deploying projects to Playstation 4 or Xbox One requires compiling source from GitHub using a Windows computer.

There have been a few known issues for developers that include

  • Generating Visual Studio projects will fail for projects that have an underscore in the name if the  Xbox One SDK is installed
  • Xbox One and Playstation 4 do not yet fully support projects with spaces in any of their parent directories.

The complete list of details for the major update to Unreal Engine 4 can be found on the UnrealEngine blog, but what this new development means for Xbox One gamers is that in the very near future you can expect to see some truly stunning masterpieces if developers use the engine to its full potential.
