Square Enix Licenses Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3

The title says it all, Square Enix anounced today they have licensed Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 to be used with upcoming next-generation games. This is a first for Square Enix because they have always done their own in-house game development and never relied on another company's engine to make Square Enix games.

The story is too old to be commented.

$20 says they will be using it on all platforms due to trouble/costs coding thier own engine for the ps3. they probably just scrapped the whole "white engine" after they saw Gears they probably sh!t themselves and said "we cant do something like that on this (the ps3) unless we prerender the whole damn game"

I just hope they can preserve their style, while using someone else's engine. Guess we'll see now if the UE3 engine is good for anything besides men in big metal suits.
