2K re-license UE3.0 for multiple-games... - Feb 13, 2008 06:11 BioShock 2 incoming!

2K Games Licenses Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3

CARY, N.C. (February 12, 2008) - Epic Games, Inc., one of the world' s leading developers of cutting-edge computer and video games and the pioneer of the award-winning Unreal Engine, today announced that its Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools will be used for unannounced games in development by 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO).

" 2K had a very positive experience working with Epic' s Unreal Engine 3 since it enables games to perform exceptionally well on both console and the PC," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. " Epic' s technology and support is expected to help 2K produce world-class titles for games on any platform."

" We are excited about continuing our relationship with 2K based on our past success with the company," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. " We have no doubt that the Unreal Engine 3 will continue to assist 2K in producing the industry' s most amazing and original games."

Interesting that since the engine is oh so hard to work with for some developers... (Silicon-we-aren' t-to-blame-for-our-game-being-shit-Knights) ...that major companies are still licensing it... in this case for multiple games.

NOTE: BioShock started out as an UE2.5 based game and was migrated to 3.0 late in it' s development cycle.
