Gamasutra is reporting that 38 Studios has decided to go with the Epic's Unreal Engine 3
to power their upcoming MMO (codenamed "Copernicus"). A few weeks ago 38 Studios picked BigWorld's technology suite
for the back-end
of things, so it's no surprise that they would grab the best graphic engine currently available. Whatever MMO "Copernicus
" turns out to be (most recent game description says: "an original IP made up of fantastical elements, settings, characters, creatures, rules, and experiences") should at least look really, really good.
