Square Enix licenses Unreal Engine 3 and Unreal Engine 4 for multiple games
Square Enix seems to know where their future lies after signing a multi-game licensing deal with Epic for the Unreal Engine.
Despite having their own next-gen engine in development, Square Enix has chosen to license both the Unreal Engine 3 which is still proving very powerful and the next generation Unreal Engine 4.
Epic Japan's Taka Kawasaki said, "Epic has a strong relationship with Square Enix, and it's an honor to provide their creative and technical talent with the best game technology available for licensing. We look forward to supporting their developers with world-class tools for years to come."
Square Enix plans to use the Unreal Engine as a sound technical foundation to help them keep on the cutting edge.
