N.O.V.A. 3 with Unreal Engine?

N.O.V.A. 3 being developed with Unreal Engine 3!

Gameloft is working on four games utilising Epic Games's Unreal Engine 3.

Word has it that shooter sequel N.O.V.A. 3 is among the four titles built around the engine and will be out later this year.

Switching to Unreal Engine 3 is an interesting move. N.O.V.A. 2 looked nice, so who knows what it'll look like this time around.

No announcement is planned for the game until late in the year, so sit tight.

The Rumour Mine at Rocket Gamer is about as trustworthy as a politician.....I guess the standards for opening a thread here are non existent.

Can we please have this thread closed, quoting rumours for games that are probably more than half a year from release is pointless.

Even I'd you don't take the rumour mine into account, it's not a big leap of faith to assume Gameloft would use the Unreal Engine on their most profitable and notorious traditional game. Really, that's a foregone conclusion at this point; it's the other game that's a little trickier to pinpoint.

It's too early for this thread. The game is at least 6 months away and it might not use UE3 (although it's likely).

You are so wrong there. Sure, they aren't right all the time, but I'd say for about 80% of the time they're bang-on-target.

I'm quite sure that their most poplular game series is the Modern Combat series, I mean, months after release of both MC2 and Nova 2 It's still higher in the charts, right?

We're talking about iOS games here, not home console games. iOS games by gameloft usually take about a year to make.

and they will probably make mc3 too
