The brief announcement did not reveal any further details on Activision's project using Unreal Engine 3, which is also licensed by publishers and developers including Microsoft Game Studios, Atari, Real Time Worlds, Namco, Midway, Silicon Knights, VU Games, THQ, and Sony Online, and powers Epic's own flagship Xbox 360 title Gears Of War.
