Emergent Game Technologies has announced that the North American business unit of MMO developer-publisher NCsoft (Guild Wars, Lineage) has licensed its Gamebryo development engine. No specific projects were specified. NCsoft also recently announced it had licensed Epic's Unreal Engine 3 for upcoming development. Gamebryo is a part of the company's modular Emergent Elements toolset, and has previously been optimized for development on Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It was used on Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and on its upcoming Fallout 3, both for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, in addition to EA-Mythic's upcoming Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. Emergent CEO Geoffrey Selzer commented, "Gamebryo was engineered as a flexible and modular platform supporting multiple genres of games. Our cross-platform technology gives NCsoft unlimited options for extending its current products and creating new content for the global gaming audience."
