The lights are on
The developer of the recent Aliens Vs. Predator has its Asura engine up and running on Sony's new NGP, and is looking to be a major player for Sony's new handheld.
Develop is reporting that Rebellion's engine now fully supports NGP development, but that the company will not be leasing it to other studios. Rebellion may instead use the head start to do contract work for interested companies. "“The technology, design and art teams have worked incredibly well with Sony’s newest device,” Rebellion's co-founder Jason Kingsley told Develop. “We have managed to make our engine fully functional, and looking great on the hardware in double quick time. We’ll be attending DICE and GDC to show what we have created and look for business partners.”
Rebellion's creations reportedly include a demo for an as-yet unnamed third-person shooter with multiplayer elements. We'll bring you more on Rebellion's plans when the company makes its announcements in the future.
