FBI Licenses Unreal Engine
According to a post on Eurogamer from yesterday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation—also more commonly known as the FBI—has licensed the usage of Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3. Apparently they’ll be using the development tools for creating better and more awesome training simulations.
The deal is a part of the US government’s deal with Virtual Heroes, a developer that makes simulations for multiple branches of “the US and allied governments.”
“We recognize the growing market needs of our government customers and are excited to have Virtual Heroes provide a full spectrum of focused services and support using our game engine technology,” said Epic’s Mike Capps.
No word yet on whether or not the FBI is working on making chainsaw guns. My guess: probably.
