Take Two and Epic Games have announced a licensing agreement for Unreal Engine 3.

Epic’s middleware will be used in unannounced games currently in production by the studios working under Take Two’s 2K Games brand.

"2K had a very positive experience working with Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 since it enables games to perform exceptionally well on both console and the PC,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Epic’s technology and support is expected to help 2K produce world-class titles for games on any platform.”

Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, added: “We are excited about continuing our relationship with 2K based on our past success with the company.

“We have no doubt that the Unreal Engine 3 will continue to assist 2K in producing the industry’s most amazing and original games.”
