Korean developer Dragonfly (Karma Online, Special Force
) has announced that it has licensed Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games for an unannounced project.
Dragonfly's 1996 debut title was Tour of Duty
, and since then, the company has created the RPGS Karma, Anpanman I,” Anpanman II
and Walpurgis Night
Dragonfly says it garnered over 8 million registered users for its online FPS Special Force
by January 2006, with 115,000 concurrent users. The company adds this is notable because at the time of Special Force
's release, the market favored online MMORPGs. The company says it is now aiming to expand global distribution of its title.
Dragonfly vice president Park Cheol Seung said, "Unreal Engine 3 is the right game engine for us. While we have developed much of our own technology over the years, Unreal Engine 3 clearly provides the cutting edge framework we need to ensure the highest development standards in our project."
