Gameloft to Develop Four New Games with Unreal Engine 3

Posted by at 10:33 pm on February 28, 2011

Gameloft announced today a long-term, multi-platform licensing agreement with Epic Games, Inc. that enables Gameloft to incorporate Unreal Engine 3 in four new games, two to be released in 2011 and two in 2012.

“Gameloft is very pleased to partner with Epic, especially with their ability to stay ahead of the curve and continually place the best game engine technology in developers’ hands at any given point in time,” said Julien Fournials, vice president of production, Gameloft. “Using Unreal Engine 3 allows us to push game visuals with remarkable lighting and high-fidelity environments. We are confident that players will enjoy the games powered by Unreal Engine 3.”

Epic Games released the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) late last year, and last week moved to raise the royalty threshold on the kit from $5,000 to $50,000, making it easier for small developers to license the engine. The UDK has been used to create console titles like Gears of War.

Under the agreement, Gameloft plans to release games on multiple mobile and downloadable platforms, including iOS, Android, PlayStation Network and set-top boxes.
