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:

Game Engines

  • Blitz Games -BlitzTech
  • Crytek – Cryengine
  • Epic Games – Unreal Engine
  • Terminal Reality – Infernal Engine
  • Trinigy – Trinigy
  • Vicious Cycle – Vicious Engine

Physics/AI/Animation

  • Havok
  • NaturalMotion

Audio

  • Audiokinetic
  • CRI Middleware
  • Firelight Technologies
  • RAD Game Tools

User Interface

  • AiLive
  • Scaleform

NGP is expected sometime in 2011, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  1. It’s no surprise we’d see the unreal engine listed as NGP compatible. It’s on the iPhone, so it’s great to see we’ll be able to play UE games on more handhelds :-)
