Unreal Engine Headed to Android?

Mark Rein, VP of Epic Games has unofficially announced via Twitter that their Unreal Engine will make its way towards Android at some point in the near future.  Pop the champagne bottles?  For the non-gaming crowd, just understand that this is well, “epic.”  Epic is in charge of the Unreal Tournament and Gears of War franchises which have been globally popular in both PC and console gaming circles and also happen to be known for ridiculously amazing graphics.  Let’s just say that an Unreal Engine backed game on an Android tablet with a Tegra processor might just be orgasmic.  (Is that SFW?)

And an Unreal Engine game running on a Tegra Android tablet:

Anyone feel like firing up some UT99?  (Cheers Justin.)

    I will agree that the original Unreal Tournament was ahead of its time, can you dodge(lunge) in MW 1/2 😀

    UT99… oh the memories

    Touch screen gaming is a cool option on the go, but its really not that fun.

    Maybe a Droid X with a small d-pad and one button. That sure would change everything.

    “Anyone feel like firing up some UT99?”

    I would, except I'm too busy pwning people in Halo Reach at the moment.

    Hmm, think I'll stick to pc for my 3d gaming. Nothing on a touch screen compares to keyboard + mouse for control.

        no way UT was way ahead of them all and still is so much faster and smother.
