great, more blocky games , ( batman is an exception)

Really people there are countless better engines around now. Why keep using the extremely dated UE3? Just makes the game suffer and not stand out of the crowd.

"Why not FrostBite 2?"

That would make the console version inferior! I sure they don't want that!

Cryengine 3 Isn't All That, Cryengine 2 When Released Was Amazing But This Time It Didnt Have The Same Effect Plus UE3 Just Got Updated With Amazing Graphics

to say the same thing. @ below, I don't think DICE or EA let other people use the Frostbite Engine and to my knowledge the Unreal Engine and Cryengine are the easiest to work with. I don't see other devs using Bethesdas engine.

Bethesda's engine sucks, unreal engine 3 looks outdated, cryengine 3 is awesome as well as Frostbite 1 and 2.

@BeastlyRig and Reibooi

That's why.
The Unreal Engine honestly isn't that bad, although it is a bit over used for professional games. If you're an indie developer though, UDK is one of the best things to come out in a while.

Also, the engine is not 'extremely dated'--this is coming with someone's who is actually developing games with the UDK/UE3.

Unreal 3 must be really easy to program with. Other wise I don't see any reason at all why so many companies use it.
