No new Unreal Tournament in the works

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.

    Facing Worlds is one of the best maps ever made… And the titan pack sure made that game even better!

    Ah just reading this article makes me almost drown in nostalgia about UT2004 and UT3 nights that became weeks worth of gaming sessions.

    I miss unreal tournament!

    UT3 was such an underrated game! Pity it doesn't have a thriving local community.

    ..Well, NO SA ut 3 servers…Grrrr….Leave UT for no and WORK ON ((((UNREAL 3 THE GAME))))) on the new SAMARATIN ENGINE!!!!!!!!Yes please

  • Patriarch

    I'm glad to hear this. Unreal Tournament and it's sequels were awesome games, even if UT 3 (The fourth one B the W) was a bit too simplified in some ways. We don't need the modern franchise-raping types to destroy another classic by putting quick-time events, sticky cover or tacked-on "radiant storylines" in a first persoon blast-fest.

    I play UT2004 Onslaught every night (against bots though). Still one of the most fun games I have ever played.
