Epic Games exec: Fortnite will not be shown at E3

Studio's unique project goes dark, for now

Epic Games' new IP Fortnite will not make an appearance at E3, an executive at the company has said.

The North Carolina studio's vice president, Mark Rain, appeared to confirm the news on his personal Twitter account.

Fortnite is a creative departure from the typical Epic Games blockbusters. The studio is a prolific outlet of bombastic space marine action games, from Unreal Tournament to Gears of War.

As shown in the video trailer below, Fortnite appears to be a strategy game where defense towers are constructed by day and defended overnight.

In March, company president Mike Capps told CVG that the project had yet to be signed by a publisher.
