Starbreeze, known for The Chronicles of Riddick series and The Darkness, announced it has entered into a multi-year, studio-wide license agreement to develop projects using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 for the engine's supported platforms.

"We evaluated several game engines in the market and came to the conclusion that Unreal Engine 3 is the solution that best fits our needs," said Johan Kristiansson, CEO of Starbreeze Studios. "We were particularly impressed by the tool chain, which facilitates rapid iteration and high productivity for our team."

"Starbreeze has proven to be a talented developer of games based on popular properties as well as those based on their own worlds," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. "With this team now armed with all Unreal Engine 3 has to offer, players will get their hands on the newest creative visions thanks to Starbreeze using our state-of-the-art game engine tools and technology."
