WMPU reported that at the HoloLens event in Japan today, Axel Riffard, the developer relations department of Epic Games, confirmed that HoloLens 2 will also provide Unreal Engine 5 support.
Unreal Engine 5 is a major upgrade with better grid management and better lighting effects, and the announcement seems to make many developers ecstatic.
Unreal Engine 4.25 has generally supported Microsoft HoloLens 2 and Windows Mixed Reality, allowing developers to easily create high-quality immersive experiences for the platform.Earlier in 2019, Epic Unreal Engine added support for HoloLens 2 for the first time.
The early access SDK provides developers with access to HoloLens 2’s unique features, including streaming and native deployment, finger tracking, gesture recognition, grid, voice input, and space anchor fixation.
Unreal Engine 4 is used to create 3D objects in augmented reality applications, not for games.
