Epic Games has confirmed that Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will be the first PS Vita game developed using the Unreal Engine. Supermassive Games is developing the game exclusively for PlayStation systems.
“At Supermassive, we always try to be very pragmatic about our choice of technology and choose the right tool for the job at hand,” said chief technology officer at Supermassive Games, Jonathan Amor. “Our aim for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is to match it as closely as possible in aesthetics, tone and sound to the television series, and also to achieve a new level of quality on Sony’s outstanding platforms. Critical factors in our decision to license Unreal Engine 3 include the capability and maturity of the Unreal Editor and tool chain, and we required an engine that has proven success in the marketplace.”
“We are big Doctor Who fans here at Epic,” added Epic European territory manager Mike Gamble. “It’s brilliant to see the world of Doctor Who brought to life by the team at Supermassive and especially to see Unreal Engine 3 powering the game that’s bringing this universe to a whole new platform and an entirely new generation of gamers and Doctor Who fans.”
