The lights are on
Warner Bros. has bought a company-wide license to use Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games, and the Mortal Kombat and Batman studios will work exclusively with the technology through 2014, according to a press release.The existing Mortal Kombat and Batman projects were already being made with UE3, so there's no change there. All this announcement tells us is that Rocksteady and NetherRealm are planning on using the tech for their next projects as well.The statement from Warner Bros. doesn't say anything about its plans for the rest of its development studios, but the agreement with Epic allows them to use UE3 as much as they like.The Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment studios you may care about include:
Could this agreement pave the way for the dark, gritty LEGO Space Marine game we've all been waiting for?
Lol every LEGO character is going to have stubble and pack heat. I can see it now - LEGO: Vice City :D
alright so what does that mean for other games? if its exclusive to Warner brothers, can Epic still use it? am i missing something?
I love UE3 and Warner Bros. ∞•∞
Unreal is a cool engine and all, but I hope the day doesn't come when every studio is utilizing the engine. I'm afraid people would start getting a little sick of it.
Disgusting engine, needs to die, this news is upsetting.
Yes! Can't wait to see what game lineup Warner Bros. Interactive will have that uses their new engine!
