I’m highly doubtful Epic Games will switch IDEs. They are stuck for the same reason pretty much everyone else sticks to VS. It’s because the Console vendors write extensions for Visual Studio.
This doesn’t mean you can’t come up with your own solutions but have fun when its time to port to consoles
You can always at least edit in another IDE though. Shouldn’t be too bad. Only use VS for debugging
