A new football game starring NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, appropriately titled Joe Montana Football, has been in the works and teased on social media for a few months now. We knew that it was going to be developed in Unreal Engine 4, but we now know that it's coming to mobile. Unreal did an interview with Damon Grow of Superstar Studios, and showed off some of the footage of the game, saying that the iOS version will be coming first, followed by Android and possibly to PC and other platforms in the future. The game is using Metal with Unreal, and the footage shown is from the iOS version of the game:

While this will certainly be an unlicensed game, it will be interesting to see just how the football plays, and how they make this one work on mobile. It does promise to look good, though. They appear to be doing an alpha test of the game at some point, and you can sign up for updates on that on the game's website.

    I got Joe Montana 94 for Christmas when I was a freshman in high school and it ended up being one of my favorite football games ever. Even though I'm more of a soccer fan now, I'll still check this one out!

    Holy SH!%. "The game is using Metal with Unreal". The words I've been wanting to hear since Metal was first introduced. This will surly be an Amazingly graphical game. Man! With this, and Transistor being a full port of the PC, and PS4 version (same graphics and all), IOS, and Apples latest mobile hardware are really starting to starting to show there premium gaming chops. In fact I was surprised to see so many major gaming companies even mention IOS at this years E3.
