Square Enix has inked a deal with Epic Games to use the Unreal Engine in future, unannounced titles.
I see they are taking the Activion way. Sad.
One of the companies with better graphics tech (Crystal engina, Crystal Dinamics engine, IO engine) is making a partnership with the engine that alone got stuck this generation in the blad space marine archetipe and urban enviroments because it can't render organic elements, not mentioning how vaseline smacked the models look and how unflexible it is for different genres. Way yo go SE!
I'm sorry but have you seen gears of war 3? It looks incredible and this comes from someone who owns both consoles. Plus the samaritan demo was using a next gen Unreal engine as well. If this deal is for next gen games it's definitely not a bad thing
The samaritan demo was running off an updated version of unreal engine 3 and not ue4.
That's the space marine archetype he speaks of. The problems of UE are widely known, hopefully SE can do something good with it.
Maybe the Unreal Engine has ease of use along with a great visual fidelity? Gears of War franchise runs it, the Bioshock franchise runs it, and they both look pretty spectacular among a slew of other titles. Also, cheap licensing may also be a huge factor with the Unreal Engine.
The unreal engine is so generic.

dont they have their own engines? the unreal engine, i do not like. it works great and all but sometimes unreal engine games look horrid on the ps3, imo.
Unreal Engine 3? Well it might be good enough for some Vita games and possibly 3DS. I hope they're not using UE3 on PS4/720/WiiU
All I want is a Bushido Blade sequel, is that too much to ask from Square?
The generation is almost over, they're a little bit behind the ball.
"Square Enix is no stranger to the Unreal Engine. The Last Remnant, released on the PC and 360 a few years ago made use of the Unreal Engine. However, complications with the engine on the PlayStation 3 left that version of The Last Remnant somewhere in limbo." Do they really think this is a good idea? I know there are a lot of games that use it, many of them I own, but I absolutely hate that the Unreal engine is used so much. At least I can still look forward to FFvsXIII.
