Needless to say, the announcement of the new Unreal Engine 5 has stimulated the imagination of numerous teams. As we have already pointed out several times, Xbox Game Studios has several software houses that develop with the Unreal Engine. The Coalition is an important example given that Gears 5 is one of the titles that makes the most of Unreal Engine 4, but Ninja Theory is also working on Hellblade 2 with Unreal Engine and surely other Microsoft teams are working to make the most of the fifth version.
Even InXile, the first party team led by Brian Fargo is working on a new Xbox A Triple A RPG project – PC, a project that has probably entered pre-production recently and that we will hardly see in July during the event dedicated to the Xbox 20/20 Game Studios. The same InXile confirmed on Twitter that the title will take advantage of the new Unreal Engine 5, but even in this case it is highly likely that the game is being worked on with the Unreal Engine 4, so that it can be changed in the race with the new version once released to developers.
Thank you. We are excited to share more, although it’ll be a while. Focusing on finishing Wasteland 3 and getting it into people’s hands on Aug. 28. We will indeed be using Unreal Engine 5 for our next project.

Brian Fargo has instead pointed out that the next project will be next-gen and therefore it is plausible that we will see it only on Xbox Series X and PC, moving Xbox One away from the support. We remind you that inXile is currently working on Wasteland 3, the latest cross-platform video game in before moving directly to full exclusives for Xbox Game Studios.
As said, we are unlikely to see anything in July, but hope is the last to die. The fact is that we have confirmation that the next RPG will be triple A and will take advantage of the new version of the Epic Games engine. At this point we are curious to see what will come out of it. How long are you waiting for Wasteland 3? Do you believe InXile can do great things with the new Unreal Engine 5?
