Ninja Theory's Unreal Engine 4 tech demo leaks

Sing us a song, you're the piano man

Ninja Theory, the studio behind DMC: Devil May Cry and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, seems to have had one of their tech demos leak. Entitled, The Beggars Opera, it's not known if this was ever meant to be the studio's next game, rather it looks more like an internal project to get the team familiarized with Unreal Engine 4.

Apart from Unreal Engine 4, the tech demo was made using Maya, Photoshop, Zbrush, UV Layout.  As far back as last July Ninja Theory has been hiring staff for an expected AAA game using Unreal Engine 4, so it's not crazy to think we could getting more concrete info sooner, possibly even an proper unveiling at E3

Interesting as the video is, what I find most intriguing is the title. The Beggars Opera was a three act ballad by John Gay, dating back to 1728. It was a semi-political satire, taking jabs at upper class and the more traditional Italian style of opera. Ninja Theory has a history of taking project inspiration from more obscure sources, such as Enslaved, which was based on a Chinese folk tale few in west are familiar with. Again, the video is more likely to be a tech demo than an actual project in development, but at the least, I'm ready for what Ninja Theory has in store for the new consoles.
