The interaction moved on to Unreal Engine 5 and of the many features Lumen and Nanite were spoken of. Quentin commented that game artists had to downgrade their projects and art. Nanite helps them keep them at a higher quality. As for Lumen integrates ray tracing technology and boosts it.

Quentin expanded on the idea that Epic Games has been focused on the quality of the games as the first priority. As for how focused on making it smaller and optimized for device quality, that would depend on the developers. And again for the new Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X games, it would depend on the developers on how they use the engine. Raji from Nodding Heads Games, is one of the game being developed in India using the Unreal Engine from Epic Games, which Quentin mentioned.

The conversation moved to the currency on the Epic Games store, Quentin says that India is definitely in the visor and it should come in soon. Following this the topic of Fortnite popped up, and Epic Games is looking at India very carefully and wants to do things well, rather than rush things. And Epic Games definitely has its sights on India and that is one of the bigger tasks of Quentin.

Fortnite was a push from Epic Games on mobile, and it is expected to move more into the segment soon. Quentin added to the comments from CEO Tim Sweeney and is aligned by the values of hi Epic Games. The conversation ended on a personal note and Quentin explained how he has a rescue diving license.
