In a recent interview with IGN, Sweeney said there can't be truly revolutionary game experiences until the best minds find crypto more financially attractive. He said:
"There's been a lot of neglect, as everybody's going off...we're missing a generation of computer scientists who would traditionally be pushing forward that set."
Without revealing much of the details, Sweeney said Epic Games has established a research team to explore new genres of games that will emerge from the technologies that are "just in the pipeline being built right now."
