2K Games licenses Unreal Engine 3

by Mike on February 15th, 2008

We’ll get more Unreal Engine 3 games soon.

Here’s something that would leave you thinking: Epic Games announced that its Unreal Engine 3 will be used for unannounced games in development by 2K Games, the publisher of recent bestseller Bioshock.

As you know, Bioshock uses a modified version of the Unreal Engine 3, so this news doesn’t come as a surprise at all. However, the most perplexing part of this tidbit is about those “unannounced games in development.”

What are those games?

You mean aside from rumors of Bioshock making its way to the PS3, 2K is coming out with another game that uses Unreal Engine 3? I guess they are.

Remember when we discovered that 2K Boston/Irrational Games is looking for PS3 programmers? Perhaps Irrational are the developers tapped by 2K to work on these unannounced games, and that said games are going to be multiplatform.

Whatever the case, we’re all looking forward to hearing more about these unannounced games. When 2K Boston is in charge, good things happen.
