LucasArts Signs Deal with Epic for Unreal Engine 3

LucasArts is just the latest company to enter the Unreal Engine 3 arena alongside Gameloft and Trendy Entertainment (the makers of Dungeon Defenders).  While there is no indication as to whether or not LucasArts plans on bringing the Unreal Engine 3 goodness to the iOS, the press release does explicitly state the powers of the engine on iOS, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

It’s also a long term deal that allows LucasArts to build not just one but multiple games using the Unreal Engine 3.

There’s really not much more information than that, but hopefully we’ll be seeing some Unreal Engine-d games from LucasArts sometime in the near future.  I wonder, what would Secret Monkey Island look like with the Unreal Engine 3?

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
