We ran into Epic Games vice president Mark Rein at Apple's iPad demo event today, happily tapping and gesturing to his heart's content with one of the sleek new tablets. Will Epic bring its Unreal Engine to the iPad?
Well, it already has, as Rein pointed out. The engine maker has a working demo of UE3 that runs on an iPhone 3GS (and Nvidia's Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip), meaning it also runs on the iPad. But Rein was non-committal on a version of the engine tailored specifically for Apple's new device, implying that Epic Games hasn't had much, if any, hands-on development time with the iPad.
