Capcom licenses Unreal Engine 3

It looks like Capcom has jumped on the Unreal Engine 3 bandwagon as Next Gen is reporting that they have licensed the game for a yet to be announced title.  At this point it is probably easier to count the companies that have not licensed the engine as everyone from Activision to Square Enix is using the engine for an upcoming project.

My only concern about everyone using the engine is that at some point all the game start to look a little alike.  It was only a few years ago when everyone was using some version of the Doom II engine and almost every FPS game released looked like a knock off of the same game.  Hopefully this won't be the case but expect to see whole lot of the same next year.
