Tim Sweeney and Mark Rein Named Development Legends

Epic Games Founder, CEO and Technical Director Tim Sweeney and Co-Founder and Vice President Mark Rein will be inducted into Develop magazine’s games development hall of fame in Brighton, England on July 10. The pair will each receive the Development Legend award, joining an elite few who have been handed the honor. The award acknowledges the duo’s success leading Epic Games in 22 years of business as a creator of major entertainment franchises and also for pioneering Unreal Engine game development technology.

This is the first time the Develop Legend award will be presented to figures from the international games development scene. Previous recipients are British-born industry leaders including David Braben, Charles Cecil, Phil Harrison, Ian Livingstone, Peter Molyneux and David Perry. The award will be presented as part of the Develop Industry Excellence Awards, an event hosted by global games development publication Develop and its publisher Intent Media.
