Square Enix to Become First UE 4 Licensee
All video games start with a foundation, this foundation has to be strong and has the potential to limit or free the developers in what they can do with their game on that engine. As such, this news will come as a shock to many competitors of Square Enix, as they have successfully made a deal with Epic Games to become the first licensee of the Unreal Engine 4!
The UE 4 is selling itself as a revolutionary new engine that will push the boundaries of games. As Mark Rein, Vice-President of Epic Games, puts it:
“People are going to be shocked later this year when they see Unreal Engine 4”
Under this deal, Square Enix will have full access to both the UE 3 and 4 engines to develop multiple games on in the long run.
