Infogrames has signed a publishing and distribution deal for several titles in Epic Games’ Unreal franchise.

The deal gives Infogrames all worldwide PC, Mac and video game console rights to Unreal Tournament, the under-development Unreal 2 along with the option to publish Unreal.

Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games said: "Their commitment to aggressively bring our games to several video game consoles was a big factor to us."

Unreal has sold over 1 million copies, and Unreal Tournament has won critical acclaim from computer magazines worldwide. Infogrames publishes for most major console and PC platforms, and is based in France.
