Unreal Engine Code Hints at Next Gen Console

The latest release of Unreal Engine 4 may have accidentally revealed a next gen console, Erebus.

Erebus appears alongside PS4, Xbox, Switch, and other platforms, and could hint a new Playstation console, you can see the code yourself, and come to your own conclusions, as it was posted over on ResetEra after it was discovered by forum member Gemüsepizza.

According to a report from VG247, who cited two sources familiar with Unreal, it looks like a console leak.

“It looks like it’s hinting at a new console. In engines you tend to have like a bunch of values to tell you which platform you’re on because they all need to run slightly differently,” the first source said. “The whole Erebus being a god thing makes sense with the Sony codename branding.

“The [first] screenshot is just the value being set. And the second one is a little bit of code that looks like it’s adding cross platform play.”

Their second source:

“All this alludes to is a possible unannounced platform through a single source file change, which is where the online subsystem stuff is (‘online subsystem’ is an abstraction layer for interactions on online services such as PSN, XBL, Steam, etc).”
