“For years Zombie has achieved great results with our technology and tools, and their enthusiasm for UE4 is infectious,” added Epic head of North American licensing Joe Kreiner. “UE4 is a next-gen engine in terms of workflow, productivity and scalability – not to mention the creative freedom it gives developers. We can’t wait to see Zombie’s vision for its newest project come full circle.”
Zombie is the second studio to announce a license for Unreal Engine 4, following a similar announcement from Square Enix back in October. Epic’s own Fortnite will be the first Unreal Engine 4 game, and Epic continues to work on engineering efforts for Unreal Engine 4 at its new Seattle studio.
Zombie released Blacklight: Retribution in April.
