EA Has Five More Unreal Engine Games in Works

  Unreal Engine III has been a massive success for Epic Games, as much of the current next-gen software available for the PS3 and X360 run on the code. Well, add five more games to that list, as EA has announced that's the number currently in development using the engine, and there's more to come.

   So far, EA has seen mixed results with UEIII: as Medal of Honor: Airborne came out flawed, where as Army of Two came out running extremely smooth. Still, time builds experience, and so things should get more consistent.

   "With the largest and most talented studio operation in the world, it's critical for us to give our studio teams the best tools they need to make great games," said Frank Gibeau, President, at EA. "This agreement reflects our commitment to Epic's technology which, in combination with our own cutting-edge systems, allows us to create ground breaking hits."

   Some speculation leads us to believe that Dead Space is just one of those five UEIII games, but that's only hot air, for now. We'll probably know more about some of the five games as E3 rolls around.

Does that mean they finally worked out the kinks for the UEIII on PS3? Just because Epic had some good success with it for UT3, doesn't mean each and every dev that uses the engine will have the same success with it.

I'm getting sick of the Unreal Engine. Developers need to take Insomniacs advice and make their own engines. I understand it is hard work but listen to these words.

"With the largest and most talented studio operation in the world, it's critical for us to give our studio teams the best tools they need to make great games," said Frank Gibeau, President, at EA.

With the "largest and most talented studio operation in the world" you would think they could make their own damn engines.

You think Insomniacs/Naughty Dogs/Guerilla Games/etc. games would look and play as well as they do if they were running on Unreal crap? Oh, thats right. EA doesn't give a f***.
