    "It's been shaking up the state of the game industry now. If you look at the eighty titles shown using Unreal Engine 4 at E3, there's a lot of the best titles in the industry, a lot of Microsoft's first party and Xbox titles, like Gears 4, and Sea of Thieves from Rare. Sony's Days Gone, Batman Arkham Asylum for Warner Brothers."
