2K Games licenses Unreal Engine 3 for mysterious ‘unannounced games’

Yesterday, Epic Games has revealed that their quest for videogame engine domination is almost complete. The Cary, North Carolina-based company announced that 2K Games has licensed the Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools for two unnanounced games currently in development.

“2K had a very positive experience working with Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 since it enables games to perform exceptionally well on both console and PC,” said president of 2K Games, Christoph Hartman.

Epic’s vice president Mark Rein chimes in saying that Epic has “no doubt that the Unreal Engine 3 will continue to assist 2K in producing the industry’s most amazing and original games.”

BioShock 2: BioShock in Space? BioShock 3: Rapture in 3D? These are both excellent ideas, but we’ll just have to wait and see. With GDC right around the corner, we may be hearing something sooner rather than later.
