Unreal Engine 4 Licensed By NCSoft

NCSoft, a South Korean developer that has brought us games such as the Guild Wars series and the Lineage franchise, has recently announced that they have licensed Unreal Engine 4.

Having used Unreal Engine 2 for Lineage 2 and Unreal Engine 3 for Blade and Soul (which is on its way to the west), it’s safe to say that NCSoft is fairly familiar with the Unreal technology by now, and I can’t wait to see what they can do with the latest edition. Indeed, even NCSoft seems to agree.

“Unreal Engine 4 is an extremely fascinating game engine in terms of its unprecedented efficiency and performance,” said the chief product officer of NCsoft, James Bae. “We plan to release our best game ever using our Unreal Engine expertise and the new state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4 tools.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Epic Games Unreal Engine 4, you should note that Square Enix has already licensed it, after declaring how impressed they are with the software.
