Gameloft has just announced that they have entered into a long-term multiplatform agreement with Epic Games to use the Unreal Engine 3 for upcoming projects. Currently, Gameloft is working on four games using the Unreal Developer Kit, with two scheduled for release in 2011, and two in 2012. No word is given on what these titles will be, but the press release does state that they are developing for iOS, Android, PSN, and Set-top boxes.
What is interesting is that previously, Epic Games had stated that they have no plans on supporting Android devices. While this doesn't mean we'll see Infinity Blade or other Epic titles on Android, it is nice to see Unreal-powered games coming to the forgotten phone of gaming.
I'm personally excited for this announcement. Gameloft games used to represent the cream of the crop when it can to mobile gaming. But with the introduction of Unreal for iOS, their games quickly became graphically unpleasing. Now, if they could just hire more voice actors than that one guy, we'd be good.
