No Bulletstorm Editor

The Epic Games Forums have word not to expect an editor for Bulletstorm when Epic's and People Can Fly's upcoming first-person shooter is released (thanks BeyondUnreal). Word is:

Hey folks, sorry it took a while to get back to you here.

In Bulletstorm, we would have had to make modifications to the Unreal Editor to account for the skillshot system. We spent years developing the skillshot system and carefully balancing weapons, and it was a resource matter - make an editor we can ship with the game or keep polishing Bulletstorm for release.

Epic maintains the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) for people who would like to work with our game development toolset. We regularly release free, updated versions that include the latest additions to the engine. UDK *is* Unreal Engine 3 - plus it comes with sample content that can be used to make standalone games. Epic's engine team makes hundreds of improvements to the engine every month and UDK is the best way for developers to keep on top of the latest technology. UDK ships with the gorgeous visual features seen in Bulletstorm - Unreal Lightmass global illumination, light shafts (a.k.a. god beams), dynamic lighting and shadowing, and so much more.

Yeah, but stop and think about it for a second.
For one, why would he even mention this in any way if it were true but he thought there may be fallout?

For another, Bulletstorm has been in development at least since it was announced in 2008 that EA was publishing a new People Can Fly title. That means it was probably in development in 2007, when PCF's last title came out.

So unless you think Epic is so clairvoyant that they could have planned and begun development of a new property to compete with Killzone 3 two years before Killzone 2 even came out, well...

Honestly, do people here even think things out, or does your hatred of any largeish company or corporation totally cloud your judgment and let you keep fooling yourself into believing things completely impossible to anything not omnipotent?

Like I said, it can be both :). They could have easily ramped up development or held back on release to compete with other products. Them releasing a game for competition is could be seen as good business sense, CliffyB just loves trolling people, that's clear from his twitter feed. I don't mean to imply they were just sitting on this WAITING with a garbage game to compete with killzone.
