Ignition London have licensed the latest CryEngine for development of a “uniquely crafted combat action-adventure, set for release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,” according to a report at Gamasutra.


Ignition presently have multiple titles targeted at the western market in development that they intend to publish, two of which are WarDevil (in development at London-based Digi-Guys) and a first-person shooter developed using Unreal Engine 3 (being worked on internally at Ignition Florida).


“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,” said Ignition Entertainment CEO, Vijay Chadha, in reference to the decision to license the tech.

    Imagine that. A generic looking third person action game and generic next gen FPS #9,423,461. I can’t wait.

      As generic as every other game in every other genre, yes, yes, we get it. Or are only these types of games “generic”?

  • Ignition’s been busy. Honestly, sometimes it seems like they’re spreading themselves very thin in a desperate attempt to break through into the game industry and become a respected publisher and/or developer without carefully calculating their actions and properly allocating resources. They don’t appear comfortable maintaining (and working within) their niche status.

    I suppose I appreciate their ambition, at any rate, but it all seems ridiculously unfocused.
