Square Enix to keep the Luminous engine to themselves

Luminous Engine to be used to lure in talented developers

Square Enix has no plans to offer their impressive new Luminous game engine for license to outside developers.

Their head of North American operations, Max Fischer explained that their new engine will only be used by their in-house studios.

He stated, "This is an in-house tool. We're not building this around a licensing model."

Fischer added that it was their hope that the impressive new technology would allow them to attract new development talent.

Thanks ShackNews.
