The Unreal Engine 3 has pretty much become the de facto engine of the current generation PC and console games, powering everything from simple puzzle games, to MMOs, to familiar franchises like Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. Epic has since been working hard on implementing the Unreal Engine 3 and varieties of it on all kinds of devices, from smartphones (Infinity Blade on iOS), to tablets and portable devices.
Epic’s Mark Rein has recently stated that the company wishes to see the Unreal Engine 3 on all platforms — not just PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but particularly mobile phones and tablets, which are seeing huge growth, particularly in the tablet scene.
Rein said that Epic is focusing quite a lot on Android as well, shipping the Unreal Engine 3 on several devices like the Xperia Play, the Motorola Xoom. Rein said that Android provided a bigger challenge than iPhone, because there are so many phones with different hardware out there, meaning the software has to be tested on each phone.
Rein still didn’t mention anything about the Unreal Engine 3 on the Wii.
