HeroEngine from Idea Fabrik now has more than 5,000 licenses, a feat they credit partly due to BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic, which uses the platform. The success of SWTOR has been big and the German company believes that SWTOR’s success is one reason there has been such a spike in the licenses for Hero Engine.

Following Star Wars: The Old Republic's release, Idea Fabrik received thousands of inquiries about the engine last January from studios both large and small, more than in any other period in the company's existence.

Idea Fabrik believes it was able to attract its new licensees because large games built on its platform helped prove that its technology -- which accommodates a wide range of online projects, from MMORPGs to social games -- could handle titles of their scale.

"This lowers the perceived risk of developers in adopting the HeroEngine platform," claims Idea Fabrik COO Neil Harris. ""HeroEngine crossed a crucial inflection point in terms of its adoption by online game developers."

A lot of people criticized BioWare’s choice to use the HeroEngine platform but it seems to be proving itself in the video game industry and the MMORPG genre. With the success that the platform is seeing, it’s likely we will see many more games coming out with HeroEngine in the future.

What do you think? Is the fame short lived or will this be a new game platform of the future?
