Bioshock studio 2K Games licenses Unreal Engine 3 for future games
2K Games, the studio that brought us such games as Bioshock, Civilization IV, and the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, has announced that they are developing a new lineup of games that will be using the Unreal Engine 3. Not that 2K Games is a stranger to the Unreal Engine: Bioshock ran on it. If they’re set to come out with new Bioshock-quality games then we’re all for it. More in the full article.
2K Games has announced that it has licensed Epic Games‘ Unreal Engine 3, the engine that powered Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3. They’ll be using the engine in a new line-up of games.
Unfortunately, aside from the fact that they’ll be using the Unreal Engine, we don’t know anything else about the games. 2K Games is still hush-hush on the whole thing, but if it means they’ll be coming out with more Bioshock-quality games, then we’re all for it.
If you remember, Bioshock ran with the Unreal Engine under its hood. While it got high praises from its critics for its storyline, the game also garnered numerous praises for its rich environments and beautiful water effects.
So on which platforms will 2K Games release these Unreal-powered games? Who knows. They’ve developed games on every platform the Engine supports: the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and, just recently, the Wii. We’ll keep you posted, so check back for updates!
