EPIC Games has announced that LucasArts has signed into a multi-year agreement to license EPIC’s Unreal Engine 3 for multiple upcoming titles. The exact titles they are using this engine for are not known just yet but, with their August acquisition of former Ubisoft Creative Director Clint Hocking, it is a safe assumption that his unannounced project will be one of them.
“Unreal Engine 3 is a forward-looking solution that shortens the path between inspiration and execution on a wide variety of gaming platforms,” said Zak Phelps, director of technology at LucasArts. “We are thrilled to add another exceptional tool to our technology mix.”
“LucasArts is now primed to capitalize on Unreal Engine 3’s ability to scale across platforms, from mobile, through PC and console all the way up to the next generation of games,” said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. “We can’t wait to see what happens when LucasArts combines their talented workforce and amazing intellectual properties with Unreal Engine 3.”
