Ripped this straight from Voodoo Extreme (http://www.voodooextreme.com):
Infogrames has officially confirmed development of UT2.

Infogrames confirms Unreal Tournament 2 in the making by Digital Extremes. As rumored all week online, the co-creators of Unreal and Unreal Tournament are currently working on the sequel to the infamous 1999 Game of the Year. Late next week, in conjunction with the February issue of PC Gamer, Infogrames will officially announce the game and detail all the news currently available at this point in development. The cover story includes an in-depth interview with the development team at Digital Extremes, specifics about the gameplay and globally exclusive artwork to be seen only in PC Gamer.

Unreal 2 is set around a different storyline to that of Unreal Championship, the way to port the XBox-only Unreal Championship will be via emulators (i'm sure there's already a few out there now ;)).

Hello? We're talking about UT2 here, not U2. And UT2 has exactly the same storyline as UC. Furthermore 90% of the maps, models and weapons seem to be identical. UT2 essentially is UC.

I hope the missing 10% will make it much better than a console game... :cool:

Well it sunds very good, but what about UW then? or is UT2 so close to going gold that it wont interfear with UW?
I've never bothered to read anything about UC coz I only have a PC but it seems like I have to dig up old articles now ;)

my best guess is that UT2 is UC for the PC, but with enough changes to make it different so that it's not breaking the UC exclusive to x-box agreement

I think most people are aware of that, Bazzi, but it also might be that UC is UT2 for the X-box. :D I think D-Stroya said it well.
