THQ Licenses Unreal Engine 3

THQ today announced a licensing agreement with Epic Games for the use of Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology in future games. No titles were announced, nor were any specific systems, but THQ did mention "next-gen consoles" in their statment.

"Unreal Engine 3 is widely regarded as a premier next-generation engine technology," said Jack Sorensen, executive vice president of worldwide studios, THQ. "We plan to complement our own proprietary engines with the Unreal Engine technology to create truly innovative gameplay experiences on both next-gen consoles and Windows PC."

"In the past few years, THQ has built one of the strongest development organizations in the industry," said Mark Rein, vice president, Epic Games. "We're thrilled that their teams will be utilizing Unreal Engine 3 in some of their upcoming projects. We can't wait to see what our technology will enable in their future releases."

It looks like the Unreal Engine 3 is getting a nice foothold in next-gen development. It will be interesting to see what developers are able to pull off with the powerful devlopment tool.
