Sega Licenses Unreal Engine 3

Sega of America and Sega Europe today announced their licensing of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 for use in "several upcoming projects being developed in North America."

"Epic is extremely excited to be working with SEGA," said Epic VP Mark Rein. "SEGA has a long history of innovation and leadership in our industry and we're honored that they've chosen to use Unreal Engine 3."

The popular 3D engine was recently attached to another Japanese publisher when it was announced as being licensed for use in Square Enix's upcoming RPG The Last Remnant (PS3, X360).

Sega noted that details on the upcoming games are still being ironed out, and further announcements will be released later this year.
