Digital and online studio Gameloft has announced a multi-platform four-game UE3 licensing deal with Epic Games.

The games developed with the engine will be released on platforms including iOS, Android, PSN and set-top boxes through 2011 and 2012.

“Gameloft is very pleased to partner with Epic, especially with their ability to stay ahead of the curve and continually place the best game engine technology in developers’ hands at any given point in time,” said Gameloft VP of production Julien Fournials.

“Using Unreal Engine 3 allows us to push game visuals with remarkable lighting and high-fidelity environments. We are confident that players will enjoy the games powered by Unreal Engine 3.”

Epic Games VP Mark Rein  also commented on the new deal.

“There is no doubt that the four games running on Unreal Engine 3 will be visually stunning and take advantage of the powerful mobile gaming devices,” he said.

“We are thrilled to provide our technology to Gameloft and look forward to a lasting collaboration.”
