Bioware Licenses Unreal Engine 3
8:09 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Canadian developers BioWare, creators of beloved RPGs such as the Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Knights of the Old Republic, have announced that they have licensed Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 for use in a future, as yet unnamed title. No further information on this new title has been revealed.

From the press release:

The agreement marks the first time the two companies have collaborated, combining the talents of the premier RPG developer with the premier next-generation engine technology creators. A BioWare development team is already hard at work on the Unreal Engine 3-powered game, an as-yet unannounced title which features BioWare's third new intellectual property.
You can find a link to the full press release below this article.

What this means for Mac gamers is, at this stage, still unknown. However, given Bioware's strong track record for Mac versions, Epic Games' multi-platform friendly business model, and programmer Ryan Gordon's current work on the game engine, chances are good that this title, when it's eventually released, will make it to our platform. Stay tuned to IMG as we'll keep you posted on the progress of this new project.
