Epic Games Gears Up for Greatness

The company behind the critically acclaimed Gears of War has seen its visually stunning shooter sell over 3 million copies in its first 10 weeks -- making it the fastest and best selling Xbox 360 game ever.

As game development becomes ever more expensive and complex, Epic is poised to become every publisher's best friend. The company is licensing Gears' underlying technology, the Unreal Engine 3, to some of the biggest names in the business: Sony, THQ and Electronic Arts.

Last week, Epic said Japanese superpublisher Square Enix, maker of Final Fantasy, had also licensed Unreal -- a shocking move, in a country whose developers are typically secretive and insular.

Wired News spoke to Epic's vice president Mark Rein about the future of Gears and Unreal.

The story is too old to be commented.

$180000000 dollars in profit for Gears Of War so far at 3 million copies...that's ridiculous good. Than they only spent 10 Mil to make it, plus they license their engine out for money...my god do I need some of their stock
