Starbreeze pick Unreal Engine 3 in long-term licensing agreement

Another developer surrenders to the might of the ever-popular Unreal Engine 3; Starbreeze Studios have signed a long-term licensing agreement to use the Epic-developed engine in their upcoming games.

Not that we know what those games are of course, as Digital Extremes is behind The Darkness II, the sequel to Starbreeze’s PS3/360 debut, The Darkness.

Johan Kristiansson, CEO of Starbreeze stated: “We evaluated several game engines in the market and came to the conclusion that Unreal Engine 3 is the solution that best fits our needs. We were particularly impressed by the tool chain, which facilitates rapid iteration and high productivity for our team.”

Maybe this means we’ll see the next game from this talented studio in the not-too-distant future.
