Bulletstorm "didn't make money"

But Epic has no regrets.

OTT shooter Bulletstorm failed to turn a profit for Epic, president Mike Capps has admitted.

Capps told Kotaku that the People Can Fly-developed FPS "didn't make money for us."

However, he doesn't regret green-lighting the project over taking the easy option and tasking the Epic-owned Polish studio with churning out Gears of War content.

"The studio has shipped AAA content," he said. "The next thing we do with People Can Fly will be great."

Still, it's a pity. As detailed in Eurogamer's Bulletstorm review, it's one of the highlights of 2011 so far.

"This is a game that wants you to laugh so hard that you sneeze on yourself, but it's also a game that wants you to experiment as much as possible with the tools you've been given," wrote Christian Donlan back in February.

"Its cleverness is as lightly worn as it is unexpected. It's the best kind of guilty pleasure."
