I would love to see an Elder Scrolls game rendered with this lovely engine. It should be shared with other developers though.

I am happy to hope now that Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls V will be huge and very very very gorgeous.

D'oh! I was hoping this was gonna replace that damn Unreal Engine for a few years at least. :(

They should share the goodness with others...
so much could be done the gaming world would instantly get better.

I guess they want out of the middleware contract support business. Also remember how a bunch of devs sued Epic over Unreal 3? They might want to avoid anything like that.

They want to keep it in the family. Rage looks beautiful and I can't wait to see what else this engine can do.

hahaha, the rest of the world will have to keep developing games on Unreal tech. Except Volition who built their own engine for Red Faction!! And 2k who have that sweet Illusion engine for Mafia II!! And CDProjekt who made that ridiculous engine for The Witcher 2!! But other than that . . .

or cryengine... Ubisoft uses their own highly modified unreal engine too. LucasArts I think uses their own as well.

Bioware will use Eclipse,Sony has their own proprietary engines,Sega has CANVAS,Rockstar has RAGE,Crytek will use CRYEngine 3,and Square Enix has Crystal Tools

Galaxia3208d ago

And Battlefield has Frostbite, Capcom has MT Frameworks and so on. There are tons of other engines out there, or devs can make their own too.

I wonder what Sony's proprietary engines are called.

TheColbertinator3208d ago

Crap.I wanted to see 2K and EA use the id Tech 5 engine as well.I'm not too happy with this decision

Very obvious. I knew this was going to become inhouse.
