The lights are on
Berlin-based Yager, creators of Spec Ops: The Line (shown) has licensed Epic's Unreal Engine 4 for use in an unannounced next-gen title.
Yager said in a press release that the title will be a major triple-A game that it expects to unveil in the coming months.
In the opinion of Timo Ullmann, Yager's managing director, "Unreal Engine 4 is, hands down, the best toolset for
creating next-generation, AAA games."
We shall find out soon if Yager intends on continuing Spec Ops or if this is something else entirely.

I loved Spec Ops: The Line! If their new game is anything like Spec Ops than I'll get into it.
What a great game!! I'm happy to hear this.
I hope that it is another Spec Ops title, although the gameplay needed refinement and could have benefited from more replay value, it's narrative was a welcome surprise and being able to experience it last year was well worth it.
Looking forward to it. Spec Ops was fantastic.
Hope it's at least a good game
This is really exciting news, but I personally hope they go in a completely new direction with their next game. I mean, they've gutted the modern warfare genre pretty thoroughly with The Line, and if they just did another one, I feel like that would only diminish the impact of the first one. How do you follow up a game that makes you feel terrible about playing military shooters with...another military shooter? And what possible narrative thread could they continue from The Line? It's all perfectly self-contained, and the only questions left unanswered are the ones that *need* to be left unanswered.
I'm excited because Yager have already proved that they can make the kind of grown-up games that David Cage was talking about at the DICE convention earlier this year, and because I can't wait to see what subject they'll tackle next.
I enjoyed Spec Ops: The Line but there was room for improvement so I look forward to what they come up with this time.
This is really awesome. I absolutely loved Spec Ops The Line and all its storyline twist. It's so rare to find a modern/military based shooter that has an amazing SP/coop and MP. I really hope they base the 2nd spec ops the line off the evil ending. That would be epic.
Spec Ops: The Line was an awesome game with a great story, so I wouldn't mind seeing them continue the franchise.
