Ignition developing new FPS with Unreal Engine 3

Ignition Entertainment, publisher behind the upcoming Digi-Guys title, Wardevil, announced today that the company has entered into an agreement with Epic Games to license Unreal Engine 3. Ignition plans to use the technology for its upcoming FPS, currently under development at its Florida studio.

"Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 is an extremely versatile engine," said Jeremy Stieglitz, Game Director and Lead Designer at Ignition Florida. "So when deciding on technology for Ignition Florida’s first next-generation video game, there was no questioning that Unreal Engine 3 is the way to go."

Mark Rein, Vice President of Epic Games commented, "Ignition Florida is pushing Unreal Engine 3 in a very exciting direction, especially in terms of environmental capabilities. These guys have the chops to create some remarkable games, and we have complete faith in their technical and creative abilities."

Ignition Florida’s new IP is set to release sometime late 2009.
