Unreal Tournament's Retail Break

Epic Not To Release A New Unreal Tournament “For Several Years” on G4tv.com is a video interview with the CEO of Epic Games where he says they are backing off from Unreal Tournament releases for "several years," though his statement is not as definitive as the story headline suggests, as he says they are "planning not to release a major retail game in the series for several years," which doesn't rule out digital distribution. He does say the series is "certainly a major long-term priority." Thanks Big Download.

UT3 is a cool game but its rocky launch did NOT help.

I was really looking forward to the launch of UT3 and then I played the "Beta Demo", what a broken POS. It wouldn't even launch on my PC which was 1 month old at the time. This totally killed my enthusiasm for the game and I'm sure it did for many others. I can see why Epic isn't releasing another UT for several years, they have severely damaged the UT brand. Looking at Gamespy's stats ( http://archive.gamespy.com/stats/ ) UT3 only has 455 people playing, vs. 2004 which has 3333, ouch. The Battlefield 2 Demo has almost as many people playing as UT3, lol.

I picked up the Black Edition for $12 on Steam and it is pretty decent, this is what the launch game should've been. Epic probably threw in the "story mode" for the console crowd, but if you are going to do that maybe come up with a good one next time please, k thx. If there is another UT for PC, please don't copy/paste the console menu system into the PC version, its terrible!

I think Epic should give the chaps at Digital Extremes another go at a UT game since Epic themselves appears to have little interest in making one.
