Dozens of games to be featured in the Unreal Engine booth at GDC 2019

By Daniel Kayser

Last year during GDC, Epic kicked off an all-new initiative designed to celebrate the global development community as teams from around the world converged inside a new, second booth to showcase their amazing work in Unreal Engine.

After three jam-packed days of demos, food, fun, and beer during last year’s show, we’re thrilled to let you know that we’re bringing this dedicated games booth back at GDC 2019.
