Vivendi Universal Games and Epic Games has announced a studio-wide agreement under which VU Games will license Unreal Engine 3 tools and technology for next generation console and PC game development. VU Games' internal and external development studios are licensed to use Unreal Engine 3 technology for next generation titles, which are expected to launch starting in 2006. Specific titles will be announced at a later date. Mark Rein, Vice President and Co-founder of Epic Games said "VU Games has an incredible lineup of internal and external development teams that we know are going to benefit from working with Unreal Engine 3." "Our licensing agreement with Epic Games underscores VU Games' commitment to developing top tier next generation products," said Peter Della Penna, Executive Vice President and COO of Product Development for VU Games. "Unreal Engine 3 technology will enable us to create exceptional high quality next gen titles in a productive and cost effective fashion." Unreal Engine 3 has already been announced for both Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, and multiple licensees (including Microsoft Game Studios, Namco, Midway, and Silicon Knights) have signed up to use the relatively dominant piece of middleware, which was demonstrated at both the PlayStation 3 unveiling at E3 and, in the form of Epic's internally-developed Gears Of War game, at the Xbox 360 showcase before E3.
