Spec Ops: The Line studio working on new game for PS4 and next Xbox
Spec Ops: The Line developer YAGER has licensed Unreal Engine 4 for a new game set to release on next-generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 and currently unannounced next Xbox. The game will be unveiled in "the coming months."
“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.”
For those who haven't played Spec Ops: The Line, I highly recommend you do so. It featured both an impactful story and tight gameplay, but unfortunately flew under the radar for many. Personally, I can't wait to see what the studio is capable of producing with the Unreal Engine 4 on next-gen consoles.
“With Spec Ops: The Line, the team at YAGER demonstrated their ability to create intelligent, cinematic games with exceptional visuals, and we’re excited to watch their latest vision spring to life,” said Mike Gamble, European territory manager for Epic Games. “Unreal Engine 4 scales to teams of all sizes, and YAGER’s new project will show what talented developers can do with leading-edge tools that unleash their creative power and productivity.”
