Gameloft to develop games based on Unreal Engine 3

Names, details not yet revealed; uses UDK for iOS

Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, the technology behind the popular iOS game Infinity Blade, will be used by Gameloft to create four new games that will be released on multiple platforms, including for the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad, the company said. Details on the games have not yet been released, though all four will be released later this year and into 2012.

Epic Games released the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) late last year, and last week moved to raise the royalty threshold on the kit from $5,000 to $50,000, making it easier for small developers to license the engine. The UDK has been used to create console titles like Gears of War. Gameloft has had a string of hit titles for iOS like their racing-game Asphalt series, N.O.V.A. 2, Real Football, Dungeon Hunter and others.

For those not familiar with the Unreal Engine, the Infinity Blade video (below) shows off the graphics from the iPhone 4 version of the game.

    I really enjoyed playing Infinity Blade on the iPad. Can't wait what Gameloft has in store!
