I disagree, Epic has the whole new market store called Fab that has thousands of assets you can basically just purchase and then drop directly into the new Editor in real time.  You can actually update your game with people playing in the editor in real time and Epic has introduced a new programming language as well.  Epic assets are free but anyone can make and publish their own assets to the marketplace which already have a ton of content. When I say someone could do Halo, I mean they can replicate a look and feel not actually pull assets directly from Halo and put into the New editor.  There are already a ton of content on doing exactly that.

Also who do you think plays a lot of Fortnite, kids.  This opens up Fortnite to all the creators who are looking to basically replicate all the junk games in Roblox with unreal graphics and a Asset store that gives them almost unlimited material.

Epic new engine allows anyone to create whole new games within their editor that looks and plays nothing like Fortnite if the creator so chooses.  This is not just a step up from Forge, its basically Roblox with a AAA engine and assets for everyone not just the wall garden of Halo.

I also agree that 343 or one of MS studios probably knew about the editor which helped with the move including studios like CD Project.

I was thinking about doing a few games on the side for some extra cash and I have a few developer friends looking to cash in as well.  We all download Unreal 5 and going through a lot of tutorials.  We will see how things go.  I might do my own class on the subject as this is something I use to do as a AI developer a while ago, building out classes to teach how to develop.

A lot of what I've seen so far very much fits into the Fortnite art-style still but that's no surprise considering it's literally called Unreal Editor for Fortnite. All the technical stuff is very impressive and way beyond what Forge can do. Didn't know about people being able to make and publish their own assets into the store though...So that should change the look overtime.

Assets have nothing to do with feel, all of these creations so far still have a Fortnite feel in movement, gunplay, etc. Because it's an editor for Fortnite and I don't think that will change. So I disagree that people could recreate Halo in it...You won't have the art-style, feel, gunplay, movement, enemies, characters, story, weapons, etc. Lol. The most they can do is make it look a little like Halo assets wise but get too close and Epic will seemingly ban you.

I know kids play Fortnite, I just think you're underestimating the mass appeal of Roblox amongst kids, it'll be fine.

Ryuu did you watch the presentation.  Just the 3 different demos were totally different.  Now the character was still a fortnite character but everything else like the Fable looking level with the dragon, the COD like level, one fighting this robot and the last was more around a spooky setting.  Each one show a huge diversity from the assets of Fortnite.

Character wise that probably takes a lot more time but nothing stops anyone from creating brand new characters and animation but key framing stuff is very time consuming.  The fact that you can use your own phone to to capture video of yourself and then have it keyframe your animation into the meta humans as we seen with Ninja Theory.  Yes now the character are using Fortnite assets but they are not limited to fortnite assets which is what I am saying.  You should know giving the community the tools they will expand way beyond fortnite assets in probably less than a year.

I am not underestimating Roblox appeal among kids, I have kids.  My son and his friends use to spend a lot of time in Roblox and I use to ask him why is he playing that crap looking game.  Now he is in his teens and playing a lot of fortnite.  All those kids move up form Roblox to Fortnite and now they get to play all the crappy games they use to love in Roblox in Fortnite.  Trust me, when the creators move to Fortnite so will the kids.
