Epic has announced BBC Worldwide and Supermassive Games have licensed the firm’s Unreal Engine 3 technology for development of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, which will be the first Vita game to utilize the engine’s toolset.
Unreal Engine is also the tech powering the PC and PS3 versions of the game.
“We are big Doctor Who fans here at Epic,” said Mike Gamble, Epic’s European territory manager. “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.”
The Eternity Clock is due on PS3 and Vita in March with a PC version following at a later date.
A full trailer for the game is expected next month as well which will highlight features such as split-screen and 3D camera support.
