Epic Games' game engine will be used on an unnamed FPS in development set for release late 2009

Ignition Entertainment has announced that the company has struck an agreement with Epic Games to license Unreal Engine 3 for its upcoming unnamed FPS set for release late 2009.

Epic's game engine has been used in hit titles such as BioShock and Medal of Honour: Airborne as well as upcoming games by publishers and developers, such as Midway, THQ, 2K, Capcom and NCsoft.

"Epic's Unreal Engine 3 is an extremely versatile engine," said Jeremy Stieglitz, game director and lead designer at Ignition Florida.

"So when deciding on technology for Ignition Florida's first next-generation videogame, there was no questioning that Unreal Engine 3 is the way to go." Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, added: "Ignition Florida is pushing Unreal Engine 3 in a very exciting direction, especially in terms of environmental capabilities."

"These guys have the chops to create some remarkable games, and we have complete faith in their technical and creative abilities."
