Epic has problems with dates

Theres a 2003, a 2004, and a 1999....what happened to 05 and 06?? Seems that 07 should be called 06 to me, because its not gonna be released my 07, it clearly states that it will be released in 06

It wasn't a 1999, it was just Unreal Tournament. UT2003 was released in 2002 and UT2004 was released in 2003.

Here we go again.

Epic made a bad choice with the naming convention, and it seems that they're still sticking with it, and theres nothing we can do to stop them, so just live with it.

If Epic didn't use the year convention people might actually expect to get more than 1.5 years of play out of their games, and that's just unacceptable if Epic wants maximal profit.

It's not Epic that has a problem with names ... it's people like you that think that names hold any significance at all.

I don't give a f*ck what they're calling their games. They could have gone for the boring old v1 - v5.1 style of regular software.

OMG, are you serious...??

And as said before... ...point me to a game that is named UT99 and I might consider reconsidering my opinions about the considerings of your brain.

Exclamation Also, releasing one game a year is a BAD IDEA THAT NOBODY LIKES.

Talk to any marketing person anywhere and they'll tell you that names matter.

Epic's naming choice for this game is pretty terrible. They say they want to push the game forward into new territories, yet they use a name that will tie the game back directly to the failed UT2003/UT2004. People outside of the UT community are already writing off UT2007 as "more of the same", despite the evidence to the contrary. That wouldn't happen (at least to the extent that it is at the moment) if the name was UT4 for example. It also raises the embaressing question (as has already been noted) about where 2005 and 2006 went. There's not a single good reason for keeping the name as 2007.

As long they keep the phrase "Unreal Tournament" in the name it`s ok for me.....
I prefer good games with bad names to bad games with good names anyways......

It really isn't that difficult. When someone says UT, they must be talking about the first UT game. That's the idea.

If they want to talk about the sequels, why not simply type the horribly long names Ut2003/Ut2004...

But most people think their fingers will fall off after putting such incredible strain on their fingers ;=)

Ah well, I can only laugh at it...
It's messy.

They should've named the games UT, UT2, UT3/UT2 expansion pack and so on.

Yeah, but it's also a bit monotonous. UT3, UT4...
A little extra wouldn't hurt.
UT4: rise of the nali combat potatoes.. a wild,silly suggestion ;-)
You get the idea.

Stick to one powerfull word.

Envy sounds retarded to me. I would've suggested Unreal Tournament: The Storming of Liandri Co. An ACTUAL single player campaign would've kicked ass.

If you simple say UT or Uneal Tournament it doesn't automatically mean the frist UT at all, in many cases it represents the whole franchise of Unreal Tournament hence why people will say 2003/2004 or 2k3/2k4 and thus why UT99 came up, because when people were debating specific elements of gameplay over the whole hsitory fo Unreal Tournament it was necesary to specify.

Also people who are still stressing about the name of the next game being UT:Envy, did you not get the memo? That was teh name of the game whilst in development and was never intended as it's name on release but, thus far UT2007 seems to be the title.
