Buena Vista To License Unreal Engine

Buena Vista Goes Next-Gen with Unreal In a joint announcement made out of Raleigh, North Carolina and Burbank, California today, Buena Vista Games confirmed that it has licensed the Unreal Engine 3 technology from Epic Games for multiple next generation projects. The first title in the agreement will be the next installment of the Turok franchise that was previously owned by Acclaim before it went out of business in September of 2004, and it will be developed by the BVG-owned Propaganda Games studio in Vancouver, British Columbia. "We have ambitious goals for the future and a strategy to enhance Buena Vista Games’ position as a major force in interactive entertainment," said Michael Ryder, vice president of worldwide production, Buena Vista Games. "BVG’s intellectual properties, combined with Epic’s leadership in underlying technology, ensure the best game content for consumers. Licensing Unreal Engine 3 is a strategic move to provide cost-effective and timely delivery of new content, allowing our development teams to leverage the enormous capabilities of emerging next-generation systems." "BVG has some awesome IP to work with and we feel privileged to contribute to its success. It’s great to be working with the Propaganda Games team, an amazingly talented group of people, and with a management team that appreciates the importance of providing its teams with the best tools and technology to help them deliver," commented Mark Rein, vice president and co-founder of Epic Games. "We have no doubt that BVG will be one of the big success stories of the next generation." Further details about the next Turok project, what next-gen systems it will be for, and how many other projects are coming as a result of this agreement are still forthcoming.
