That’s right, the NGP is apparently powerful enough to run these engines, or at least some version of these engines. The press release doesn’t expressly state that the engines are 100% compatible, but rather that the “following middleware companies have their innovative technology solutions available right now to support NGP developers”.
Looks pretty promising to me; here’s the list:
- Blitz Games -BlitzTech
- Crytek – Cryengine
- Epic Games – Unreal Engine
- Terminal Reality – Infernal Engine
- Trinigy – Trinigy
- Vicious Cycle – Vicious Engine
- CRI Middleware
- Firelight Technologies
- RAD Game Tools
NGP is expected sometime in 2011, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
