Epic to announce new IP at GDC 2011?

According to Examiner, the latest issue of EGM features an interview with Cliff Blezinski who tells us to look toward GDC 2011 for an announcement of a new IP by Epic Games. Supposedly Eric Holmes, lead designer of Prototype, is working on the game and although Blezinski came up with the idea for it, it has since become more Holmes's project.

Clifford went on to say: "Gamers votes with their dollars and they often like established IP, but those IPs came from somewhere, right? Call of Duty was crafted by the original Medal of Honor guys. Gears of War was crafted by the original Unreal Tournament guy. I look forward to creating what's next."

Call of Duty was a bit better than Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, yet kind of the same. Gears of War was completely different from Unreal Tournament, except for both games being a lot slower than Quake. So in theory, I guess you could look forward to a reveal about some game, around the start of March next year, that might be better than and different from Prototype, and potentially slower than Quake? I thought that game was already called inFamous 2.

Epic's last couple of new IPs across different platforms have been good or something to look forward to, so we'll see what they'll announce when the time comes.
