Developer Rodeo Games has acquired a license to produce Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) games for a currently unannounced project. There are some details known though. As a mobile developer, this title will be coming to portable devices.
Moreover, the game with Epic Games’ lauded engine will be branded by one the Games Workshop franchises. This company is mostly known for the success of Warhammer, which Rodeo Games previously worked on with Warhammer Quest on mobiles.
We’re still quite a way’s away from seeing this mysterious project come to life, as the expected date so far is set in the second quarter of 2015. This will be one of the first mobile releases that will use the Unreal Engine 4.
Epic Games hopes that this collaboration will help promote their engine to others. Mike Gamble of Epic Games stated:
As Rodeo will demonstrate, UE4 has so much to offer indie developers, and we look forward to helping many more teams compete in the marketplace.
While you may have heard a few things about the Unreal Engine 4 before, there aren’t a lot of games in advanced state of development, so far. Some notable games to look out for with the tool are Daylight from Atlus and Epic’s own Fortnite.
Recently, Games Workshop has been handing out their license to many different developers, where at first they kept it under wraps with just a few studios, like Relic. Other platforms currently holding some properties are Space Hulk on PC and the upcoming Deathwing from Focus Home Interactive.
