Epic Games is bringing its Unreal Engine 3 to the iPhone, an endeavor already in the tech demo phase.

The company's VP Mark Rein recently showed off a demo of a modified Unreal Tournament level running on iPod Touch, as technology site AnandTech reports. This version also works on iPhone 3GS -- but as it requires OpenGL ES 2.0, it doesn't work on the 2G or 3G.

Epic told the site it has no plans to enter the iPhone game market itself, but is porting UE3 to the iPhone as one of many new initiatives within the company.

Rein also said that the iPhone UE3 can be made available to licensees "at some point in the near future," but not as part of the free Unreal Development Kit.

Rein also says to expect to see UE3 running on "another mobile platform entirely" as early as CES in January, with further announcements coming throughout 2010.
