NCSoft, the developer responsible for popular MMO titles such as Lineage II and Guild Wars II, has negotiated a deal with Epic Games to license Unreal Engine 4 for game development. The agreement is said to be a "long-term deal" spanning multiple projects.
Speaking favorably of the engine and its capabilities, NCSoft chief product officer James Bae stated, "Unreal Engine 4 is an extremely fascinating game engine in terms of its unprecedented efficiency and performance. We plan to release our best game ever using our Unreal Engine expertise and the new state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4 tools."
NCSoft is now one of only three third-party software developers to have signed on for a licensing deal with Epic Games for the use of the engine thus far (joining Square Enix and Zombie Studios) and is the first South Korean company to make the jump.
While no specific details or plans were given regarding future projects, NCSoft promises to deliver "top-tier games of a massive scale." Gamers can take solace in knowing that their future titles are being created with one of the most advanced development platforms available.
