I made this thread seeing as no one has made a thread like this WITH A POLL! :D

Remember! You want a larger community and a larger fanbase to play with, so pick the most catchy name that will bring in new players easily. Also to make people think that this is a totally new and different game so they dont get reminded of the failures of UT2003/UT2004.

A better name is more sales (good for epic), more players (good for us), and more maps and mods (good for us again). Thats why its important to choose a good name. Its not as simple as: "It doesnt matter to me because Im gonna buy it anyways so just name it wateva u want such as UT2007", it does matter to US because we want more players and more maps and mods and basically a larger community. We (atleast I) also dont want UT2007 as the name because UT2007 sounds like a sports game and that gives players the wrong impression because it really isnt, and also, a new one doesnt come out every year which makes it a completely wrong name (atleast IMO).

Also: Forget about the previous naming conventions for UT, we want to change the naming convention seeing as it is a bit of a failure. So it's not "lets just stick with what we have as the current naming convention". Theres nothing wrong in changing the naming convention seeing as how great the GTA series did (I thought Vice City was going to be called GTA4, but the change in the naming convention did great).

CliffyB Tournament 20X6 :lol:

j/k

I personally thought that Unreal Tournament 3 (or 4, depending how you see UT2003/4) would have been good enough. This year thing reminds me too much of EA sports games.

SAME :o This game is suppose to remind me of a hardcore fast-paced FPS shooter just by looking at the name.

I voted for Unreal Tournament 3

These aren’t that great but I thought I'd give it a try.

http://www.vigilantesquad.com/forum/uploaded/Ryans_Privates/UT3Logoidea01.jpgThat's suite. Would be better if the III was set over top (or maybe under?) of the rest of the words and the whole thing was centered.

If you can't tell, I voted UT3.

Whoa! You should see the one at AtariCommunity, most of them want it to be left alone as UT2007.

How about "Unreal Tournament 3: Tournament of the Unreal"?

lol, seriously though, UT3 would have been best. Although i don't really care about the year thing though, but i feel unless you make one each year it kind of defies the whole point or using a year based naming scheme.

Unreal Tournament 3 or Unreal Tournament 4...I'm fine with either of them.

These aren’t that great but I thought I'd give it a try.
I disagree...That first one looks excellent :tup:

I'd be all about a subtitle naming scheme if they had a better, more involved story line, and some character development that goes deeper then the intro in 2k3.

Like instead of 2003, it could've been Unreal Tournament: Kreigors Fall.

This one could be Unreal Tournament: Rise of the Necris, or Asymilation.

All in all though, I don't mind the year thing, especially if they don't get into any deeper character development. Sequel numbering is a bit clechéd though.

It'd be really cool if they could keep the game backwards compatible, and just come up with a kinda new name, and not ever have to change it.

The more I think about it though "Unreal Tournament: Asymilation" sounds cool, and can probably be incorporated in multiple ways if they wanted to.

Unreal Tournament 2. We haven't had UT2 yet, UT2003, or UT2004 is not UT2.

Mock my words, one day, we will see UT2. :P

I don't mind if it's called UT2007 or UT3, it's just a name. It's the game that should matter, meaning how it plays or if the fans like it, etc.

Here's a UT2007 & UT3 logos that I made, thier not that good. But to me they kind of gives it(the game) a more bloodsport style of feel, maybe some thing Epic could think about.

But in UT 2007 will be the fourth UT game to be realeased, so in logic it would be called UT4. (I voted 2007)

I didn't think of it that way, which may make new players get that feeling, or just not buy the game at all. But it's an idea other than copying UT2003/2004 style.

I think that Epic should/could have put a poll on thier site to get fans input on what the title should be. Again I don't care if it's called UT2007 or UT3/4, I'm still going to get the game, when it omes out. Can't wait for the demo too.

Hey BooGiTyBoY how about this UT2007: Gorge's Revenge, or UT3/4: Gorge's Revenge ;)

If it were to be different, I'd say Unreal Tournament 3.

Why 3? Well numerically it would make sense. Unreal 200x starts with "2" and they both in fact use the same engine. UT2k4 and 2k3 can be counted together, more over for the fact that they share a common feeling, atmosphere, and huge maps.

Thanks for actually having a real thread about the unreal tournament name. was getting sick of all this bitching and noone actually being constructive.

I hope Epic goes back to basic and make this game the true sequel to UT, and hence I think Unreal Tournament 2 would be the best name.

Dude, these posts get more retarded everytime I see them, even though they don't change.

UT = UnrealTournament
UT2k3 = UnrealTournament 2003
UT2k4 = UnrealTournament 2004
UT2k7 = UnrealTournament 2007

There is no UT2. There is no UT3. There is no spoon. There is no STFU.
