NCSoft will be making use of Unreal Engine 4 in their next two MMORPGs, thanks to a deal with Epic Games. The budget for the unnamed titles is over $92 million each. Could Aion 2 or Lineage 3 be on the horizon?
Two of the bigger MMO titles under NCSoft, Lineage 2 and Blade & Soul, were both developed using older Unreal Engine builds. Aion, another one of the company’s main titles, runs on the Cry Engine.
NCSoft will be keeping these two Unreal Engine 4 titles under wraps until Lineage Eternal, the developer’s Lineage ARPG title, is released.
