The game development engine known as MT-Framework will no longer be in use by Capcom for this next generation of game consoles. MT-Framework, which powered titles such as Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 and Devil May Cry 4 has been retired in favor of a new engine that specifically is designed to work with the power of next generation consoles Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This comes as a surprise because MT-Framework was, by and large, considered to be the best game development engine of last generation. Older games developed on MT-Framework still look incredible to this day. Devil May Cry 4, which is five years old, can still drop jaws with its stunning textures, tight controls, and smooth 60 frames per second gameplay. Perhaps Capcom will consider releasing MT-Framework as an open source engine for other developers to use. It would be a shame for it be lost forever.
