Epic Games officially announced Unreal Engine 4 earlier this year. showing off some impressive visuals to the press. Today, it was announced that latest version of its popular game graphics engine and tools will be used by Zombie Studios to make a game that is currently scheduled for release in just a few more months.
In a press release, Seattle-based Zombie Studios said the unnamed project would be a "psychological thriller game". It will apparently be a PC exclusive. What's most interesting is that the target date for the game's launch is in the second quarter of 2013, meaning that we could see the first UE4 game in about six months or so.
Zombie Studios has worked with previous versions of the Unreal Engine in the past on a number of different games. The developer is perhaps best known at the moment for its free-to-play first person shooter Blacklight: Retribution.
Epic Games announced in late 2011 it was making its own Unreal Engine 4-based title, the strategy-action hybrid called Fortnite. However, the developer has been pretty silent about the game's progress for the most part, with the exception of a panel that was held during the San Diego Comic-Con event in July.
