    Hey Everyone,

    We've released an update for Bridge (https://help.quixel.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014159497-What-s-new-in-Bridge-2020-4-1) that includes support for Unreal Engine v4.26. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Close Unreal Engine, if already running.

    2. Update Bridge to the latest version.
    (When you open/restart Bridge, you'll get the prompt asking you to update)

    3. Once updated, please go to Edit>Manage Plugins and update the Unreal Engine plugin as well.
    (the latest plugin is v7.1)

    Should you face any further issues, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@quixel.com and we'll be with you as soon as we can.

    I've also tried to figure it out recently. And looks like Quixel simply didn't release plugin for 4.26 yet, unfortunately.

    This is the only thing preventing me to switch to UE 4.26

    It would be great if the plugin would follow the release of Unreal Engine so its ready at the same time. Hope there is news very soon.

    We'll be releasing a 4.26 compatible plugin as soon as practicable. Thanks for your patience!

    Thanks for your response Jonathan (Community Manager)!

    The following is not meant as an attack or a critique - i just want to understand it since this is happening every time a new UE version gets released.
    Why are you not updating the plugin before UE gets updated? There is a preview version available which should be fine for adjusting the plugin - or isn't it? Are there so many last minute changes that could break the plugin compatibility again?

    UE 4.26 got released right before the Epic Megajam weekend. I bet many new users were downloading UE 4.26 to use it in the jam and then spent a lot of time to figure out how to get Quixel textures into their games.

    I don't know - maybe i'm completely underestimating the effort that needs to be put into updating the plugin but this just doesn't seem very practicable to me ;-)

    But just to make that clear: I love your company and I'm a big Quixel fan for a long time now. It's just this one thing that raises a big question mark above my head every time a new UE version is coming out.

    As much as i'd love to see the plugin being updated on the engine release date my guess would be, that while Epic have a version in preview each update they push warrants a new megascans plugin update. As such each version of the update would have to be tested before releasing to the public.

    It's frustrating to say the least, but I do understand if it's just not feasible to run tests and updates on a version that isn't marked as a stable release.

    You would think with the partnership there could be collaboration in development to prepare for an eventual release.  But of course I do not know the contract structure or challenges in the partnership.  Or could there be at best a better managed expectations for it's end users.  I can't wait for it's release I am very eager and thank you for your partnership with Epic!!

    SERYNX It's not partnership. Epic owns Quixel.
