Rocksteady and NetherRealm to use Epic tech exclusively until 2014

Epic Games has announced a long-term engine licensing agreement with Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment.

The new deal means Unreal Engine will be used on numerous projects at two Warner Bros outfits; Rocksteady Studios and NetherRealm Studios.

Included in the deal is Warner Bros option to use unreal engine on any project it publishes.

Both parts of the deal run until 2014.

“We're very excited that the talented production teams at NetherRealm and Rocksteady will continue to make Unreal Engine 3 their exclusive core technology for the next few years to create the exceptional titles they are so known for," said Epic Games VP Mark Rein.

"We look forward to seeing how the engine will contribute to the upcoming games from these teams and potentially other Warner teams and external developers who develop or publish with Warner."
