Following the demonstration of its engine at Sony's press conference yesterday, Epic Games has announced today that it intends to offer its Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools under Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.’s Tools and Middleware program for PlayStation 3 as soon as the license program is started.
"We are committed to making Unreal Engine 3 the best game engine for the PlayStation 3", said Tim Sweeney, CEO and co-Founder of Epic Games. "We plan to offer it to our licensees as soon as the program is underway and we are very excited about the level of performance and visual quality we will be able to deliver on this platform. In addition, Unreal Engine 3 should be an excellent fit for the platform and our licensees will benefit immensely from the experience we have been able to gain thus far working with it."
Unreal Engine 3 has already been announced for Microsoft's Xbox 360 next-gen platform, and multiple licensees (including Microsoft Game Studios, Namco, and Midway) have signed up to use it.
