Blacklight: Tango Down and Blacklight: Retribution developer Zombie Studios is the second publicly known licensee for Unreal Engine 4.

No further details on the project are available.

Zombie Studios follows Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider publisher Square Enix in signing a deal with Epic Games to license Unreal Engine 4. That deal was described as "long-term" and "sweeping," noting it will span multiple games from Square Enix.

Epic Games' own Fortnite was the first game to be confirmed to run on Unreal Engine 4. It is due out sometime in 2013 exclusively for the PC.
