Blender Today Live: RIP Blender Internal, RIP Game Engine


Hang on to your seats - here's some more important news: after the Blender Internal renderer, the BGE has now also been permanently removed. Apparently the team is working on a post-2.8 alternative, but it won't be the BGE as you know it anymore.

In the last episode of Blender Today Live we say good bye to the two main losses in the Blender world last week: Blender Internal and Blender Game Engine. Plus a look at the new Workbench engine, UI changes and other Blender 2.8 goodies!

  1. About time.
    There are counltless game engines out there, way better than blender ge could ever be.

    No need to carry a heavy stone in your pocket for no reason. They been carrying it for more than a decade now.. Time to drop it.

    Blender is made for animation, modeling, Rendering and thats about it.

    I actually used game engine for years and years untill I moved to unity(5 years ago) and experienced the full power of game developing.

  2. Does this mean that also the logic editor is gone? It could be used to create for example big battlefields and stuff where it's not reasonable to animate every agent individually.

    • The logic editor, or a comparable logic editor of similar or better functionality, would be worthwhile to port or add to Blender more generally. We can simulate physics, simulating AI is a logical feature as well, for big crowd scenes.

      Something with fairly simple functionality, basic options for giving objects behaviour, spawning groups of them with ease, and having each object follow a based (perhaps node based) AI behaviour for movement, playing animations at certain times, etc. Doesn't need to be too extensive, anything more complicated than that would be probably better off being implemented by someone with coding knowledge and some custom plugins.

    A little bit sad, but I can live with this. I just hope that EEVEE and Godot Engine would eventually go out on date,s get married, and start a family together. (Wink wink.)
