Destineer (Starship Troopers, Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy), the studio formed by former Bungie Software executive vice president Peter Tamte, has announced that it has licensed Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games for a yet-to-be-announced project. Epic VP Mark Rein said Destineer was using Unreal Engine 3 in a way "that people might not expect to see." He commented, "We’ve been encouraging companies to use their imagination and think outside the box with Unreal Engine 3, and it is exciting to see that the message is starting to pay off.” When Gamasutra spoke to Tamte regarding Destineer earlier this year, he said that the studio was "quietly building" its own game engine for next-gen console, and that Destineer's Minneapolis and Raleigh studios were using it to build "large-burdget games." Tamte also said in the interview that Destineer had "greatly expanded" its number of projects with third-party developers, adding, "we expect to get much more aggressive internationally later this year." On the current project, Tamte commented, "The Unreal Engine 3 is an impressively versatile piece of technology, and we are very excited to utilize it for our unannounced project. We are using the Unreal Engine to make a game for a genre in which you would not expect to see it. The engine is performing marvelously and Epic’s support has been top-notch.”
