High Voltage, the developers behind the Wii-exclusive first-person shooter The Conduit, have signed up for a lifetime licence to the Ghostbusters-powering Infernal Engine, gearing up for some Xbox 360 and PC development.
With The Conduit out of the way and a couple more Wii projects being polished off, High Voltage Software is now ready to make the leap into the “next-generation.” They’ve signed an agreement with developer Terminal Reality that grants them a lifetime licence for the Infernal Engine, which was the driving force behind the extremely well-received Ghostbusters: The Videogame on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Joe Kreiner, VP Sales and Marketing at Terminal Reality, neatly dismisses the Wii as a current-generation platform.
“With more than 75 titles shipped, High Voltage Software has a proven track record of developing quality products on all of the current platforms. Through the use of the Infernal Engine technologies, they are now able to extend that remarkable track record into the next-generation platforms.”
Poor Wii. Still, considering how painful it was to read reviews for The Conduit, perhaps moving to a new platform is in order.
