Star wars with unreal engine now possible on iOS

New outlook for the Force Unleashed company after internal tech work
Star Wars development group LucasArts has purchased a studio-wide, long-term licence to use Unreal Engine.
LucasArts said the tech would be used on multiple projects, with new opportunities to build Unreal-powered content on mobile, PC and consoles.
Quote:
"LucasArts is now primed to capitalise on Unreal Engine 3's ability to scale across platforms, from mobile, through PC and console all the way up to the next generation of games," said Epic Games vice president Mark Rein.
"We can't wait to see what happens when LucasArts combines their talented workforce and amazing intellectual properties with Unreal Engine 3," he added.

Meh.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

This 'could' be brilliant, cant get any worse than most of those other Star Wars games on iOS , most of which are very poor.

But i wont cross my fingers, will be a long time coming but will be good when it does one day happen

Just an x-wing vs tie-figher on iOS would make my century. I would pay $15 for that. With gyro/accelerometer would be perfect for that.

I really don't understand why they haven't released another space sim game like that. It certainly would be a big seller.
