Epic Games has licensed its Unreal Engine 3 for the PlayStation Vita version of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock.
According to Epic, the Supermassive Games developed title will be the first Vita game to use Unreal Engine.
The Eternity Clock was first revealed last December. BBC Worldwide later confirmed it would be released exclusively on Sony platforms and PC.
"At Supermassive, we always try to be very pragmatic about our choice of technology and choose the right tool for the job at hand," said chief technology officer at Supermassive Games, Jonathan Amor.
"Our aim for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is to match it as closely as possible in aesthetics, tone and sound to the television series, and also to achieve a new level of quality on Sony's outstanding platforms.
"Critical factors in our decision to license Unreal Engine 3 include the capability and maturity of the Unreal Editor and tool chain, and we required an engine that has proven success in the marketplace."
Epic European territory manager Mike Gamble added: "We are big Doctor Who fans here at Epic. It's brilliant to see the world of Doctor Who brought to life by the team at Supermassive and especially to see Unreal Engine 3 powering the game that's bringing this universe to a whole new platform and an entirely new generation of gamers and Doctor Who fans."
The BBC has also confirmed it's working on a Doctor Who MMO.
