Gameloft announced today a long-term, multi-platform licensing agreement with Epic Games, Inc. that enables them to incorporate Unreal Engine 3 in four new games, two to be released in 2011 and two in 2012.
“Gameloft is very pleased to partner with Epic, especially with their ability to stay ahead of the curve and continually place the best game engine technology in developers’ hands at any given point in time,” said Julien Fournials, vice president of production, Gameloft. “Using Unreal Engine 3 allows us to push game visuals with remarkable lighting and high-fidelity environments. We are confident that players will enjoy the games powered by Unreal Engine 3.”

“There is no doubt that the four games running on Unreal Engine 3 will be visually stunning and take advantage of the powerful mobile gaming devices,” said Mark Rein, vice president, Epic Games. “We are thrilled to provide our technology to Gameloft and look forward to a lasting collaboration.”

The visuals were always decent for GL. All the other stuff is what sucked.

I am so omniscient; if there were to be two omniscience's

You are wrong there. The rest of their games was far ahead of most other similar available iOS games.

I'm guessing and Hoping that Modern Combat 3 will use the Unreal Engine...

Really? Their RTS is the only actually good one I'd say.

Can you find a better Realistic-ish shooter than Modern Combat 2 for example?

Nope. But that doesn't mean it's good.
With a completely disguisting and overly simplistic metaphor (can't do any better this tired), just because I've never heard of anyone's shit smelling good, doesn't mean I want to smell my own for days.
