View Full Version : Guess the new UT name


Juguard

I say it will be Unreal Tournament 2. :P There wasn't one, so why not? and what a perfect name to bring lots of UT fans back. :)

I'm hoping Unreal Tournament 3. Why 2? UT2 = UT2004, and forget UT2003 :rolleyes:

Unreal Tournament 3 is better, fits in with the name of the eninge.

I'm voting for UT3.

Raffi_B
30th Mar 2005, 10:18 PM
My guess is that it's probably not going to have a number after the name.

I think it's going to be Unreal Tournament: Revenge or something lame along those lines... ;)

hal
30th Mar 2005, 10:30 PM
Hmm... well the two-part name is the hottest thing in game titles these days. I might be inclined to go along with that theory.

Something like Unreal Tournament: Conquest or the like might be a thought.

Xaero
30th Mar 2005, 10:32 PM
I vote for Unreal Tournament 3... it kinda rolls into the Engine version number, and its more of a 'classic' title.

Juguard
30th Mar 2005, 10:49 PM
I don't think it will be UT3, just because it does not work out, cuz there were 2 other UT games in between, UT2003, and UT2004. If its just the next UT after UT2004, and they ditch the yearly name, it should be Unreal Tournament 4, not UT3.

But what hal and Raffi_B said, could be it. Unreal Tournament: OtherNameGoesHere

But I still like Unreal Tournament 2. :)

I'm guessing it's going to be called something like UT:Evolution or some crap, but I hope it's just UT3.

BadAss84
31st Mar 2005, 06:20 AM
UT3 would be good imo :)

As said it would fit in with the engine name :tup:

SkaarjMaster
31st Mar 2005, 09:10 AM
Um, I'm hoping for Unreal Tournament 3 as this goes along with the game engines/map file extensions. But what I think will really happen is a silly two-part name like UT: Envy or maybe even UT: SGBG (same game better graphics).;)

So, my vote goes to Unreal Tournament: Envy!

EDIT: You can't call it UT2 when the map file extensions for UT2003 and UT2004 are .ut2................this would be very confusing. Just think of it as UT2 was already released as UT2003 and it was just OK and UT2004 was released as an expansion pack for UT2 and made it a lot better. Why don't they just call it BeyondUnreal? :D

ThirtySixBelow
31st Mar 2005, 09:19 AM
I think if they are trying to go back to the original style they should go with UT2. This will press the fact that they have learned a lot, enough so to release another "real" unreal tournament for all the UT99 fans who hated UT2kx. All of us who currently play the game are going to buy the next one, so I don't think they have to worry about losing any customers over name, so they might as well do something that will attract attention.

captainrad
31st Mar 2005, 11:31 AM
i bet its gunna be called Unreal Tournament 2003. i mean how could that ever be wrong?
if not that then probably UT: For Free.

these are the most obvious choices.. am i right?
:crazydance:

Sir_Brizz
31st Mar 2005, 11:34 AM
Something with Necirs in the title probably. The Necris War, The Necris Conflict, etc.

T2A`
31st Mar 2005, 11:37 AM
UT2 would make sense, except that they've already done it. UT2003 was originally going to be called UT2 but they changed it for whatever reasons. The map file extensions are .ut2 if that's any sort of clue, and both UT2003 and UT2004 use that extension, so from that, and the version number of the engine each game is running on, we can derive this:

UT1 = UT
UT2 = UT2003
UT2.5 = UT2004
UT3 = Envy

It just makes the most sense.

Selerox
31st Mar 2005, 11:57 AM
I'm hoping they just stick to Unreal Tournament 3. The numerical part gives it a bit more history, and makes it clearer that the game is part of a long line of UT games, rather than some confused, abiguous name (see below).

I think it's going to be Unreal Tournament: Revenge or something lame along those lines... ;)

That's what I was thinking. I'd be a fairly bad move in my opinion. As long as it's not "Unreal Tournament: Vengeance" (right, Tribes fans?) :lol:

I would like it to be called Unreal Tournament 3 (UT3).
For some reason, I think that Epic will actualy give this game a good name.
:rolleyes:

Bot_40
31st Mar 2005, 12:22 PM
hmmm, I'm with SkaarjMaster & co. on this one. The sensible and best option imo would be UT3 but I can just see some "marketing genious" insisting on a crappy 2 part name.

Seriously doubt it would ever be UT2. For one it would prolly cause too much confustion with UT2k3 and 2k4 and also epic already said they named UT2003 like they did because they wanted to avoid confustion with Unreal 2 which was out at the time.

Or maybe they should "do a winamp" and call it UT5 :D

Go&nd
31st Mar 2005, 12:29 PM
Perhaps they could enlist the same marketing genius who named the third Thief game (Thief: Deadly Shadows):

I hope it's simply UT3 or UT4, and get rid of all those extra stuff that makes it harder to pronounce.

Nevertheless...here are a couple suggestions:
-Unreal Tournament: vehicle necromancy
-Battlefield UT (companies can't claim the word 'battlefield', can they?)
-UT: Malcolm strikes back (or..."black")
-Unreal: the return of the Tournament
-Unrealer Tournament

Unreal tournament: Leisure suit Loque in the land of the lame lizards... :lol:

I think we need a push up from "Tournament" it needs to go that next level.

If it sticks with "Tournament" I'd say...

Unreal Tournament: Vengeance.

I don't really fly with UT3, since UT its been UT2k3 then 2k4, but I'd have to put the 2nd iteration of UT together as the culmination of UT2 style.

UT3 doesnt seem to "Kick" on me.

I still like Unreal Warfare, that kicks the game up a notch.

And Conquest matches to that idea.

..I wonder what happened to that non-Unreal universe game idea they kicked around..

but i think, the map extensions are as far as this suggestion is probably gonna go... i think that its gonna be called tnemanruoT laernU 6002 or something just cuz it sounds so cool

hm maybe 'unreal warfare' is just another codename that they used prior to 'envy' or something? or its the name of the engine or something...

Reborn - Stupid. Implies that UT died at some point.

Bloodbath - Childish and stupid. Violent video games have enough trouble without being called 'bloodbath'

Crossfire - What? How does that reflect on the games content? It's a map name ffs.

Crossfire - What? How does that reflect on the games content? It's a game mode name ffs.

200x - Nope. New engine, new game style, dropping the sports theme. This is probably the least likley option.

I think UT:Conquest would indeed be too obvious/would draw to much attention to Conquest (there's still the chance that Conquest will fail). So go with Warfare =)
