Ignition Entertainment has licensed Epic's Unreal Engine 3 for a new FPS under development at its Flordia studios.

Described as a 'groundbreaking' new game, the title is a new IP for release next year which will 'bring something fresh and exciting to one of the industry’s core genres'.

"Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 is an extremely versatile engine," said Jeremy Stieglitz, game director and lead designer, Ignition Florida.

"So when deciding on technology for Ignition Florida's first next-generation video game, there was no questioning that Unreal Engine 3 is the way to go."

"Ignition Florida is pushing Unreal Engine 3 in a very exciting direction, especially in terms of environmental capabilities,” added Mark Rein, VP, Epic Games. “These guys have the chops to create some remarkable games, and we have complete faith in their technical and creative abilities."
