TimeGate licenses Unreal Engine 3
US developer TimeGate Studios has announced that it has licensed Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 for its latest project.
TimeGate said the engine would be used to develop "a next-generation title" that will "invigorate an already popular genre." The developer's previous games include Axis and Allies, Kings of War and the Kohan series, all for PC.
âAs TimeGate continues to build itself into a first-class development outfit, we look for the strongest partners and technology to both enhance and accelerate our projects,â said company president Adel Chaveleh.
âEpic and Unreal Technology have met these high standards. Using the Unreal Engine 3 has given us a running start on development of our new IP, allowing our team to focus primarily on the innovation and quality content that we have become known for in our previous titles.â
Epic VP Mark Rein said the company was "delighted" with TimeGate's decision. âUnreal Engine 3 is all about supporting innovation and pushing creative boundaries for next generation content, and maximizing the power and scope that new hardware offers," he commented.
"We are in a position to help developers deliver outstanding next-generation content right now, and the TimeGate team will be delivering some outstanding content to show exactly what Unreal Engine 3 is capable of.â
Developer Bioware has also announced that the Unreal Engine 3 will be used to power its first next-gen title. Previous Unreal Engine generations have been used in a wide range of games including Splinter Cell, Deus Ex and Star Wars: Republic Commando, as well as the Unreal Tournament series.
