11 bit studios has announced that after years of using its own proprietary technology, the company is now fully transitioning to Unreal Engine development. As part of a custom license agreement with Epic Games, 10 upcoming projects will be produced internally and externally under the 11 bit studios publishing umbrella. These games will be using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 and Unreal Engine 5 technology.
The long-term business relationship with Epic will provide 11 bit with the freedom to select which variation of the Unreal license is the most suitable for a particular project. Moreover, it will offer the company the option to extend the number of projects included as part of the agreement.
Przemyslaw Marszal, CEO at 11 bit studios, said:
“The imagination knows no bounds, and now with the Unreal Engine our possibilities are endless, too. The brand new tech of the 5th generation is impressive, and we’re excited that we might use it to its full potential in our new games. What we’re doing is Unreal!”
Rocco Scandizzo, EMEA Games Business Development Director at Epic Games, added:
“For more than a decade, 11 bit studios has developed and nurtured unforgettable experiences, games that capture our imagination, demand our attention, and challenge us as players to make truly difficult choices. With Unreal Engine as their storytelling tool, we can’t wait to see where they take us next, and we look forward to collaborating with their team for years to come.”
