Square reveals new gaming engine, Luminous

Friday, 26th August 2011 20:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Square Enix has revealed its new game engine, Luminous, built for PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and next-gen consoles. The firm has said since it supports programmable shaders, games for Wii U and Vita will be a shoe-in. According to an Impress Watch report, the firm is looking into options for Nintendo Wii and 3DS which don’t support programmable shaders. The Direct X 11 native engine will not be made available to developers outside the firm, and in-house development studios such as IO Interactive and Crystal Dynamics will continue to use the Glacier 2 and CDC Engines, respectively. Thanks, Develop.
