It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Many game engines are, indeed, in C or C++, particularly the first-person-shooter types. This is because that style of game typically needs to squeeze the maximum possible performance out of the graphics hardware.
So, to answer your question, no you do not need to learn C or C++. It will be helpful if you want to take full advantage of graphics hardware but not all games need that.
