CARY, N.C. — Epic Games is thrilled to receive its third consecutive Develop Industry Excellence Award for Unreal Engine 3.

Rein today said to trade magazine MCV, “We couldn’t be more excited about Unreal Engine 3’s third consecutive Develop Industry Excellence Award and what it means to Epic and to the rest of the industry. Developers have seen what our technology can do for PC and console games, and now we are ready to usher in a new era of mobile games.
“Unreal Engine 3 is nothing like any other engine you’ve seen on mobile platforms. It’s going to raise the visual bar and define the standard for the mobile games of tomorrow. Wait until you see what we’re rolling out to customers now, next year and beyond. With all the new features we’re packing into Unreal Engine 3, and with over 285,000 UDK users, look out world – we’re just getting started!”
