Square Enix has signed a long-term Unreal Engine licensing agreement with Epic Games that gives Square-Enix developers full access to Unreal Engine 3 and Unreal Engine 4 technology across its studios.
Epic Games announced today an agreement with Square Enix granting the publisher a group-wide license to develop multiple games with Epic’s award-winning Unreal Engine 3 and its new Unreal Engine 4 technology.
Epic Games Japan, which is providing local support, worked directly with Square Enix on the new license. This sweeping agreement will supplement Square Enix’s proprietary software and ensure the studio is armed with “the most powerful game development tools and technologies available across all major platforms,” the press release reads.
“Epic has a strong relationship with Square Enix, and it’s an honor to provide their creative and technical talent with the best game technology available for licensing,” said Taka Kawasaki, territory manager of Epic Games Japan. “We look forward to supporting their developers with world-class tools for years to come.”
