    I'm betting it's one of those deals where if you have to ask you can't afford it.
    But to make a rough guess here, just off the top of my head, likely closer to a hundred thousand than not...
    I could always be wrong of course, but the Unreal engine is very popular so my estimate, if I am wrong, is FAR more likely very conservative than exaggerated .

    last I checked, it was $300,000 for the engine used to make Unreal Tournament. So it is a very premium game engine that only very big game developers are going to be able to afford, or if they manage to get a publisher that would be willing to buy the game engine for them.
