Square Enix and Epic Join Forces

Long term licencing deal secures use of Unreal Engine 4 for future projects

It was only a matter of time before we started to hear about Epics Unreal Engine 4 getting put to work. The first such news comes from Square Enix who have just reached an agreement with Epic to license the all new Unreal Engine 4, as well as their popular Unreal Engine 3.

The new deal gives the publisher rights to develop multiple titles for the foreseeable future using the game engines and general Unreal Engine technology. Along with the deal comes local support from Epic Games in Japan, which will help with game development and obviously improve their understanding of the games engine.

As some of you may know, the tech behind Unreal Engine 4 is impressive and it's tech demos earlier this year caused a storm that had people itching to get their hands on not only the next-gen tech behind it, but the next-gen games it can produce.

But Square Enix haven't been sitting on their hands either, with their tech demos for their Luminous Engine wowing crowds earlier this year also, with visuals that were on par with what Epic had achieved  So we really have no idea what games will use Unreal Engine and Luminous, but it sure will be interesting to find out.
