Finnish studio Housemarque revealed via Press Release they are licensing Unreal Engine 4 for use on future projects including an unannounced title.
IlariKuittinen, CEO of Housemarque, said in a statement…
“Throughout our 22 years, Housemarque has taken pride in building our own proprietary technology to build the games that we want to play. Our summer 2017 release – Matterfall bucked that trend and was the first Housemarque release to use Unreal 4. We have made the decision to use Unreal Engine 4 exclusively going forwards. Unreal 4 enables fast prototyping, contains modern pipelines and editors for artists and designers and provides really valuable documentation and support forums. Plus, it’s still very customizable so we can still use our award-winning rendering and visual effects tech with the engine. We’ve got some exciting stuff in the works!”
Housemarque decided to use Unreal Engine 4 after the decision was made to focus less on arcade coin-op games and more on new genres.
