Chances of Jazz Jackrabbit 3 and Unreal Tournament 4 revival

I'm just wondering is Epic Games studio able to focus on more than one game project which means more than Fortnite Battle Royale(prototype wasn't so popular). I wish Jazz Jackrabbit 3 and Unreal Tournament 4(I've got this feeling that they don't want to do anything with these games) would make founder and CEO of Epic Games Tim Sweeney rich like billionaire I guess thanks to help of their Chinese investors Tencent.

They probably could if they were small scale. They already have a huge thing going with Fortnite and that's bringing in loads of cash.

I remember Fortnite being insanely popular from the start, what's that about?

Jazz Jackrabbit is barely a footnote and nobody remembers it at Epic. The first one was popular 26 years ago and the second one was a flop. It's so oldschool it was taught by Plato himself and though that's not a bad thing, it's irrelevant to today's market.
UT4 was completely mismanaged and missed the time window when arena shooters briefly enjoyed moderate renewed interest. Arena fast FPS games have been a niche genre for more than a decade and the game would have been free anyway, so either or both games would have made them something like 0.12$.
Meanwhile, Tim Sweeney is already a billionaire.
