Project X game engine details

Of course, one of the most important things when creating a game is figuring out what engine it will run on. 100 Thieves confirmed that they will be developing Project X in the new Unreal Engine 5. When discussing the decision, Pete Hawley had this to say about why it was the obvious decision:

“It’s just become best in class for just about everything. The more it’s been in development over the last 25 years, the more awesome it’s become.”

Games such as the new Witcher title as well as the new Tomb Raider game have been confirmed to be in development in the Unreal Engine 5.

Of course, the accessibility of Unreal Engine 5 is making it a popular choice for smaller and indie developers who are then able to create high-fidelity games in a way that would have been unachievable previously.

Does Project X have a release date?

Sadly, fans may have to wait a few years before they get their hands on this title. While no release date has been announced, the team at 100 Thieves have made it clear that they will be keeping their community up to date with progress and that things are beginning to really ramp up in terms of the development process.

Robinson explained that the process will involve more back and forth than the usual development cycle:

“What’s actually gonna happen is, we’re gonna hire some engineers, we’re gonna build a playable sandbox, we’re gonna trial lots of different things and we’re gonna scale from there.”

Hawley then went on to add that, “it’s not like we’re gonna disappear down a rabbit hole for two years and then pop up and hope it works.”

With more details and updates promised to be on the horizon, here’s hoping 100 Thieves are able to kick things into the next gear and reveal what exactly Project X is all about. We’ll be sure to keep you posted here as any further details emerge.
