Capcom Enters into Licensing Agreement for Unreal Engine 3

Once again, Capcom has entered into a licensing agreement to use Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. Last time it was for the company’s upcoming sci-fi action game Dark Void – this time it is for an as of yet unannounced game being developed in Europe.

Keiji Inafune, managing corporate officer of Capcomstated:

“Unreal Engine 3 is a perfect fit for this project being developed in Europe, and is capable of ensuring a high-quality game experience. Not only does the development team have thorough knowledge of Unreal Engine 3, the general versatility of Unreal Engine 3 will fully meet the requirements particular to this project.

“Unreal Engine 3 comes with a wide variety of functions required for next-generation game development, and it provides ease of use. On top of that, one of the major advantages is the well-established support system.

“We are delighted to enter into this license agreement, and have strong backup by Epic Games. With Unreal Engine 3, we can expect high development efficiency as well as high creativity within the development team.”

Maybe they will let a bit more about the game slip during E3, so be sure to hang out with us July 14-17 when Gaming Today’s Jon, Ron, and Shawn will cause mayhem and leave a trail of crying babies and broken hearts in the dust when they descend upon an unsuspecting L.A.

… and yes, I know their names rhyme and no it is NOT a conspiracy….
