I doubt it. Bugs or not, it's much cheaper to use the Unreal 3 engine than make a proprietary one or start anew with another.

I would like to see some confirmation of this rumour.
Somehow it just doesn't make sense, at least not for these reasons. I doubt it's as big a problem as the article makes it out to be, if true at all, because a lot of developers are using it. That many people wouldn't use a product that's hard to work with, especially big Dev houses that could afford other engines.

Unreal Engine's supposed to be easy to use and reduce development costs, but I guess it just doesn't run well on the 360...? Maybe that's why Gears of War has an iffy framerate and not many characters fighting at once (this was all before the Unreal Engine 'upgrade' so hopefully those things were fixed along with it). Too Human looked and performed like crud at E3, but I don't think they would go through the trouble of ditching their entire engine. The amount of time and money involved with starting over from scratch would be debilitating to say the least, especially since this game was supposed to originally come out on the PS1.

I did find a link to gameplay videos of Too Human though. I'll let you form your own opinion. http://media.xbox360.gamesp...

gamesl like these need their engines to achieve their goes proparly.

sk is in the same position that namco was in when they were making frame city killer

but i think its too late to start making the game from scratch with a new engine

GoW's an tactical shooter, if it had Ninety Nine Nights or Dead Riseing style gameplay, it would defeat it's purpose Lol.
