Rockstar Games is confirmed as the second licensee of NaturalMotion's real-time animation technology...
It's already well known that LucasArts has been developing both Indiana Jones and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed with NaturalMotion's euphoria technology, but the Oxford-based company has today announced a second licensee: Rockstar Games.
Today's news comes several months after "several months of close collaboration" between the two companies, with the level of euphoria's integration into Rockstar's upcoming next-generation titles described as "well advanced".
"euphoria is about giving people an interactive experience they have never seen before. We now have the processing power to simulate humans, and the possibilities for games are endless," said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion.
"In Rockstar, we have found a partner that shares this vision, and is renowned for creating some of the most ground-breaking and immersive games in the industry. We are thrilled and honoured to work with a partner of such high calibre, and look forward to helping create amazing titles."
Specific Rockstar titles haven't been named, and whilst the deal between the two may be a little too late for October's Grand Theft Auto IV (or perhaps not???), it does seem likely to be utilised in LA Noire, which is currently in development for PlayStation3 in Team Bondi, Australia.
