While a recently filed lawsuit suggests not everyone is happy with Unreal Engine 3, game developers have been flocking to Epic Games' middleware solution in droves. Since debuting in 2006, Unreal Engine 3 has been picked up by a number of big-name developers from both the Eastern and Western game markets, including Sony, Capcom, and Midway.
In addition to support from major studios, Epic's middleware solution has also been picked up by several smaller developers. The latest studio to take advantage of Unreal Engine 3's game-making tools is Malorca, Spain-based Tragnarion Studios.
With the engine, Tragnarion announced today it has started development on The Scourge Project, a story-driven first-person shooter that emphasizes team-based gameplay. The Scourge Project will support up to four-player action, and according to Tragnarion, each player will "experience a personal story, whilst playing together as a squad."
The Scourge Project is slated to ship for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2008.
