While Sony’s big info dump presentation has passed, little bits of information and clues about potential game possibilities continue to dribble out as it relates to the PlayStation 4. Today it has been confirmed that the Bitsquid high-end game engine, created by the company Bitsquid which was founded by the owners of developer Fatshark, will soon be available for licensing on PS4.

“We are proud to be a part of this important event and welcome this powerful new console on which we will see many amazing new games.” says Bitsquid CEO Johan Strömberg.

If you’re familiar with Fatshark, you have likely already experienced the performance and flexibility of the Bitsquid engine in games like Krater, War of the Roses (pictured), and Hamilton’s Great Adventure. Could this lead to games like Krater and War of the Roses appearing on the PS4? It seems unlikely, but I would certainly welcome the possibility as both are PC games that are far beyond my rig’s dated specs.
