Not supporting an engine like UE4 (or rather the enigne not supporting the console) is a huge deal, today more than ever before. Not only are engines like UE4 widely used and supported, they have opened up even more in the last years: Nearly all bigger engines have become cheap or free to use instead of needing to be bought for thousands of dollars. Students, self-learners, indies, just everyone can use Unreal, Source 2, Cryengine, lumberyard, unity and more today. Those people (I being one of them) will be the devs of tomorrow.
