Warsaw, Poland-headquartered game publisher and developer City Interactive has inked a licensing deal to use Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 in an unannounced first-person shooter slated for 2011. The announcement of the licensing agreement comes shortly after City Interactive licensed Frankfurt, Germany-based Crytek's CryEngine 3 for two other unnamed FPS games due in the next few years. City said in a statement that the UE3 agreement "substantiates the company’s expanding development capabilities and its overall growth." City recently announced that it hired on industry veteran Stuart Black, formerly of Criterion and Codemasters, to head up a new UK-based game development studio. At City, Black will be working on "an exciting new story-driven WWII shooter that will emphasize high adventure in a genre that's become bogged down in reverence and historical accuracy." Dozens of games utilize Epic's multiplatform UE3, with more recent examples including Electronic Arts' and BioWare's Mass Effect 2, EA's new Medal of Honor and Namco and Ninja Theory's Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
