Rockstar Goes Unreal

According to that muckracker Crecente, Rockstar has purchased the Unreal engine. Golly, there must be some happy folks over at Epic right about now. They've cozied up with Microsoft, there will be an eval version of UE3 shipping with PS3 dev units, Midway has gone all a skitter over their stuff and now the badboys of the game industry will be creating their next hooker-kicking simulation with their goods.

I hope all of these companies realize that one of the engine's biggest strengths is it's moddability. Course, it remains to be seen if Rockstar will want to take advantage of that in the future.
