Publisher Ignition Entertainment (Mercury Meltdown) has announced that it has chosen Epic's Unreal Engine 3 for a yet unannounced next-gen title it refers to only as a "groundbreaking FPS" under development at its Florida studio. The founding of the Florida studio was announced in December of last year, alongside a new Tokyo studio, both of which it said would be focused on "the creation of new IP specifically for the next generation formats." Apart from an agreement with Marvelous to localize the company's handheld retro remakes like New Zealand Story Revolution for the DS, Ignition signed a deal in April to co-publish SNK/Playmore titles in North America, starting with Metal Slug 7. Ignition Florida's title is due for release in "late 2009," and is said to bring "something fresh and exciting to one of the industry’s core genres." Said Epic VP Mark Rein, “Ignition Florida is pushing Unreal Engine 3 in a very exciting direction, especially in terms of environmental capabilities. These guys have the chops to create some remarkable games, and we have complete faith in their technical and creative abilities.”
