Crytek has announced a new licensor for its CryEngine 3 in the form of UTV subsidiary Ignition (Deadly Premonition publisher), which will use the engine for an action-adventure title being created at its London development studio.

Publisher/developer Ignition, which is headquartered in the U.K. with offices in Los Angeles, Florida, London, Mumbai and Tokyo, will use the engine for a "flagship title" described as a "uniquely crafted combat action-adventure, set for release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3."

CryEngine 3, which recently upgraded to Version 3.1, includes Live Create, which lets developers simultaneously create and edit game content in real-time on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC from a single developer’s PC.

While no CryEngine 3 console titles have shipped yet, Crytek's own recently revealed Crysis 2, being published by EA Partners, is one of the showcase titles for the latest evolution of the formerly PC-exclusive engine technology.

“For us, the advanced cross-platform technologies offered by Crytek were the natural choice. The comprehensive tools and expert support provided by Crytek, combined with the experience of our team, are already delivering impressive results."

"In particular, the rapid speed of iteration that can be achieved when using CryEngine 3 Sandbox makes this a tool of choice for anyone seriously intent on delivering AAA cross-platform titles," said Vijay Chadha, CEO of Ignition Entertainment.
