UT 2003 Demo Status

A post to the Infogrames Forums by Epic's Mark Rein (thanks POPE and Jean Paul Lebreton) gives a status report on progress on the Unreal Tournament 2003 demo, saying that they would provide an update on those forums when they think (emphasis Mark's) they are about a week out from a release, but they were not yet that close. Here's the deal:

We understand you are anxious for the demo

We understand you are anxious for the demo but posting "where is the demo" threads here won't make it appear any sooner. When we think we're close to the demo (i.e. within 5-7 days) we'll let everyone know officially through this forum. We're not there yet, we're still more than a week away. We could be more than two weeks or even more than three weeks away. We're not holding out on people, we're just not done with the game yet and although a lot of the game is coming together very quickly we still have no 100% (or even 80%) accurate way to predict exactly when that will be. I promise the development team is working very, very hard to get an awesome, polished UT2003 in your hands. The demo will be released when we think we've got all the major functionality of the game complete so that the feedback from the demo can be focused 100% on things we weren't already aware needed to be addressed.

18. Rumor control begins in the home Jun 7, 2002, 16:51 Phayyde
 
So who started the demo rumor anyway? I always enjoyed it best when demos like these came from nowhere, with no warning. I love waking up to another workday, but instead, getting that hyper-excited email/phone msg from my lan bud babbling incoherently about kicking my ass. And when I seek the BluesNews, the good link is right there. No muss, no fuss.

I hope this alternate plan of starting/stopping rumors weeks from release works out for Mark Rein.
