The studio behind Spec Ops: The Line, YAGER Development, has now licensed Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 for an announced next gen title. There is a lot of speculation surrounding the studio’s move, most people are suspecting that they are working on a sequel to Spec Ops: The Line. If this is true, then this will get me and a mostly everyone else extremely excited.
Spec Ops: The Line was one of the best shooters we had last year, and it was pretty underrated. “Unreal Engine 4 is, hands down, the best toolset for creating next-generation, AAA games,” said Timo Ullmann, managing director at YAGER. “Unreal Engine 3 enabled our great team to tap its full potential for the development for our award-winning game Spec Ops: The Line and beyond. YAGER is thrilled to be utilizing Epic’s latest technology for our foremost project as the new workflow is incredible, and Blueprint visual scripting gives us more control over building our games than ever before.”
It seems they are pretty excited for next gen titles, just like everyone else. We all know about the PS4, but we’re still waiting for Microsoft’s announcement. We can only imagine what the two consoles will be able to do when we see more from them, we’ll just have to wait till E3.
