Sega extends Unreal Engine 3 license

The new deal will see the engine used on an unannounced, cross platform title

Sega has announced that it has purchased a new license to use Epic's Unreal Engine 3, for an unannounced, cross-platform game.

"The great capabilities of Unreal Engine 3 make it possible for our developers to deliver incredible gaming experiences," said Dave Cobb, vice president of development for SEGA of America.

"Unreal Engine 3 provides superior power and flexibility enabling SEGA to bring original and exciting next-generation multi-platform titles."

This follows on from a similar deal last year to license the engine, used on various titles such as Gears of War and BioShock, for several other as yet unnamed titles.

"SEGA has cultivated some of the world's most treasured game franchises, and we are thrilled that they have decided to make more games with Unreal Engine," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games.

"Epic is committed to supporting SEGA with exceptional tools and technologies so it may continue to build upon its successes."
