    Square Enix becomes first publicly confirmed Unreal Engine 4 licensee



    Epic Games announced today Square Enix now has full access to Unreal Engine 3 and 4, making the Japanese company the first publicly confirmed UE4 licensee. Epic disclosed the agreement is "long-term" and will span multiple games. In other words, the deal is a very, very big deal.

    "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, Epic Games Japan territory manager. "We look forward to supporting their developers with world-class tools for years to come."

    Earlier this year Epic revealed Fortnite as the first game to use Unreal's new engine. It's expected to launch next year, so it'll likely be a while yet before we see what UE4 does for Square Enix going forward.

    Thanks to Kwes for the signature!

    "As long as there are dreamers who have the courage to pursue their dreams, the world will have heroes. And as long as there is a thirst to discover the unknown, there will be new stories to tell...and new adventures to be had."

    Unreal engine 4 = FF7 remake. I bet my soul on it.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I'm guessing this is Square-Enix Europe? (AKA. Eidos).

    The main Square-Enix has their own brand new Luminous Engine.
    Trophy-licious!

    This has to be for Europe Square, Japanese Square would rather build their own.
