LucasArts and Epic Games have come to an agreement that will allow the Lucasfilm gaming subsidiary to implement Epic's Unreal Engine 3 in future game development, the Triangle Business Journal reported today. Games developed with the engine will span a variety of platforms, but no specific titles were announced.
According to the Triangle Business Journal story, LucasArts "previously licensed Unreal Engine 2 in 2002." A quick search reveals that this licensing agreement was for 2005's Star Wars: Republic Commando. With nothing else to go by, let the rampant speculation begin...will we finally get a sequel to Republic Commando among the new titles running this engine? We'll keep you updated!
