Ignition Entertainment announced that it has entered into an agreement with Epic Games to license Unreal Engine 3 for an upcoming, groundbreaking FPS, currently under development at its Florida studio.

“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,” said Mark Rein, Vice President, Epic Games. “These guys have the chops to create some remarkable games, and we have complete faith in their technical and creative abilities.”

Ignition Florida is developing an original IP for release in late 2009 and is confident of bringing something fresh and exciting to one of the industry’s core genres.
