In news that brought one big, wobbly tear to my eye over my coffee this morning, it turns out Epic Games is not currently working on a new Unreal Tournament game, and may or may not have any plans to do so in the future.
“Unreal and Unreal Tournament continue to have a huge influence on the studio here, even though we’re not currently working on an Unreal IP project,” the company’s prez, Mike Capps, told Forbes.
“Epic’s core game making philosophy of “when everyone says it’s done, keep polishing!” came from our experiences with Unreal Tournament. That’s the beginning of our quality-focused studio DNA.”
The third – and for the moment, last – Unreal Tournament game came out in 2009, and hardcore experts like me and my friends agree that it was scandalously underrated, and that if you didn’t buy it, it’s your fault they’re not doing another one.
Honestly, I just don’t know how you can sleep with the fate of Facing Worlds on your conscience.
