It’s unreal how much news we’ve been hearing about Unreal Engine 3 lately. Gameloft has just announced a licensing agreement with Epic Games to use their Unreal Engine 3 to make four new games. They say that two will be launched this year, with the other two to follow in 2012.
“Gameloft is very pleased to partner with Epic, especially with their ability to stay ahead of the curve and continually place the best game engine technology in developers’ hands at any given point in time,” said Julien Fournials, vice president of production, Gameloft. “Using Unreal Engine 3 allows us to push game visuals with remarkable lighting and high-fidelity environments. We are confident that players will enjoy the games powered by Unreal Engine 3.”
I wonder what they’re working on. Maybe they’ll make the push to do more console stuff with UE3. With this week being GDC, I’m sure we’ll hear something.
