Lets have a little game: We all estimate the U2 release date and whoever comes closes wins .... errr .... the PuF Best Guess of the Month Award ... or something. ;)

Here's my guess: June 15th, 2002 i.e. U2 = my birthday present. ;)

April 16, 2002. It's in the middle (of the calender :D) and it's a Tuesday; usually software is released on Tuesdays.

(And it's the day before my 2nd PuF-iversary. :D)

I say Unreal II will be released in the first week of April.

9th Oct 2001, 04:04 AM
I bet they won't release the game until after summer.
My guess is August 21.

/me slaps Grimstar around a bit with a large trout

What did I say above? Exact date.

9th Oct 2001, 08:51 AM
I said first week because im not sure what day the games are released in the US. Games are always release on one of the week days. It Friday here in Austarlia.

It's in the middle and it's a Tuesday' usually software is released on Tuesdays.

In that case ill say the first tuesday of Arpil 2002. Thats the 2nd right ?

9th Oct 2001, 10:43 AM
I reckon U2 will be out in the UK on June 7th 2002. Games are always released on a Friday over here.

9th Oct 2001, 10:47 AM
july 29th 2001 is my guess

9th Oct 2001, 10:51 AM
They won't release it during the holidays I think. :) So I'd say March 21, 2002. :D My birthday of course! :p

9th Oct 2001, 11:15 AM
heh, my b-day is in march to :D
7th to be precise
Zaccix, your avatar needs some tweaking :p

For this little contest it's the offcial release date that counts, i.e. the US release date (assuming that the US will be the first place to get their hands on the baby).

9th Oct 2001, 09:09 PM
US date, hmm...probably May 10th, seeing as the US always gets games way ahead of the UK. Diablo II was released near to the end of the US school year, and people bought it in droves. Who said summer is a slow period for games sales? ;)

Stryker: I kinda like the grungy, unclean look of the avvy. Besides, it looked worse than that when I scanned it in :)

10th Oct 2001, 05:40 PM
June 5th, 20002. Hey, it's my birthday; besides it seems like a pretty reasonable guess.

11th Oct 2001, 11:20 AM
infogrames has made some of the dates open to the public
unreal 2: second quarter of 2002
masters of orion: first quarter of 2002

yay :)

Infogrames said it would be Q2 2002 back in June already (http://www.voodooextreme.com/comments.taf?postID=16617), while the official website said (and still says) Q1, so this doesn't mean too much to me.

Read what Chris Hargrove wrote in this thread on the INA forum (http://ina-community.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=137000). Working on large projects myself I know that he's right. Dates can easily slip by 1, 2, 3, ... months, not only in games business.

11th Oct 2001, 04:36 PM
today a german gamer-mag posted, that epic won't set a release-date!

it's just finishes, when it's done...

so we have 2 wait!

anyway...it's not important wether or not they finish it as fast as they can - inportant is, that the sell us a finished game and no beta, as it happend many times before (not @ epic, but the last case was here in germany: massive brought out aquanox, but it seems, that is has as many bugs as it had in alpha-state!)

13th Oct 2001, 04:32 PM
Didn't we learn anything from U1? My bet is more like december 1 2002:( sorry guys...

I don't want to wait 18000 years for U2 :p

Being pessimistic I say November 2nd

The background of Grimstar's sig image is from Outcast 2 (http://www.gamespot.co.uk/stories/news/0,2160,2096248,00.html); the guy in the foreground is from UW.

14th Oct 2001, 09:16 AM
I guess (well hope) 17th of July, so that it will be shipped on my Birthday :D (18th of July for the dumb ones)

P.S. Where can i pre-order Unreal 2?

14th Oct 2001, 08:36 PM
