Square Enix have signed a contract for Unreal Engine 4
Square Enix have become the first company to publicly confirm that they’ll be using the Unreal Engine 4.
A press release by Epic Games confirms that it is a long term deal and will span across multiple games. Epic Games have a studio in Japan that will ensure that Square Enix is kept up to date with the engine.
This announcement is rather curious, as not four months ago, Square Enix unveiled the new engine that they would be using for the next Final Fantasy game. The demo could have been primarily to show the art style of the next Final Fantasy game or perhaps they are using different engines for different games.
We shall have to wait and see.
