I'm a bit relieved to hear this, actually. UT3 is a great time, but the title is clearly headed downhill in the esteem and enthusiasm of the fanbase. For many of us, UT1 was a real turning point in gaming, and it was simply too high a bar to top each time, so the feeling was of greater and greater disappointment, for the most part.

That said, I hope people will keep playing UT3 online until the resurrection of the series.

I'm glad they aren't making another UT. With the player count as pathetic as it is in UT3, it wouldn't make any sense to make another game so soon.

Really, what more could be added to the core of UT to warrant another sequel at this point? Isn't it better to update and tweak the current game as they have been?

We'll meet again
We'll meet again,
Don't know where,
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,

I wouldn't call those bad news. Epic clearly needs to do something else as UT series has clearly gone downhill. The only thing that worries me though is that they might step away from PC infavor of Xbox360 but hopefully that won't happen.

While it is a shame, UT hasn't appealed to me as much in the past couple of years anyway, and I tend to play it (any version) less and less.

But that is just Unreal Tournament. What about if they will do another Unreal game or spinoff or maybe new Unreal Championship meanwhile? Or hire another studio to do some spinoff or sequel.

I doubt they will even bother making Unreal Championship when they already have Gears as their top console franchise. I'm not disappointed in Epic not working on an other UT title, since this franchise could probably use a break and not be oversaturated. I'm only sad that this will mean Epic will probably step away from PC gaming all together and work only on Gears and other Xbox-only titles like Shadow Complex.

I actually kind of agree that unreal needs to take a break.

So we all already know that they are working on GoW3 and the new DLC is soon to be released (as already posted awhile back).

So if they are working on a new title (which will undoubtably be console (only?)) I am curious as to what it might be. Well, not that curious. But curious a little. I just hope they aren't planning on a GoW clone.

I do think a MMO is a possibility. Their engine seems to work perfect for it, so maybe a step in the direction that does have high-er sales might be in the works.

Or maybe they are going to just stick with GoW universe and kill it dead, since that's their source of income now (besides the engine of course)

I still have UT installed on one machine and play it as regularly, or more regularly, than UT3.

UT2K4 gets a look in now and then.

As has been said this news is no surprise. I'm surprised they didn't blame it on the Global Financial Crisis; everyone else does...........

It saddens me to hear this, but it's for the best really. There's just not much place for UT in the current market, I'm afraid, with games like CoD, TF2 and L4D (not to mention Halo and GoW on 360 and Killzone 2 on PS3) dominating the FPS multiplayer market. Whenever they do feel like going back to it, I really hope they time it a lot better than they did with UT3. Maybe then UT will also feel fresh again with all of these realism shooters saturating the market, who knows.

At least they didn't rule out Unreal 3. I know the chances of seeing that any time soon are slim, but the hope is still alive!

Uhm sorry to say that, but that did already happen - the Unreal Engine 3 was designed around the 360 and Gears of War, the Unreal Engine 3.5 is 360only for the moment, Shadow Complex is 360 only and well dont get me started on UT3 and what it did to UT's Fanbase (who would have thought that after UT2kX we get an even bigger drama in the fanbase with UT3)

Now i await another CliffyB Interview, for a longtime he didnt say anything about how the pc fanbase, the pc-gaming as a whole and pirates are the reason for all this while completly neglecting the fact that his company just screwed some things up royaly.

Would be cool though if they would indeed be doing Unreal3, but thats something i cant just see with the company that now is Epic Games. The Only things i see are a bunch of 360 exclusives and the People Can Fly 360,PS3,PC Titel (and maybe even the People Can Fly Game will go to the way of 360-only - its been a long time since we heared anything about it).

3.5 is not X360 only - we just know that GoW2 was the first game using it, however we don't know if any other cross-platform UE3 game uses v3.5 or not. But that doesn't mean 3.5 is X360 only.

Well thats what i meant when i said "for the moment" - Gears of War 2 is the only game we know that uses it - so for the time being its on 360only - just shows that their focus has long been gone away from PC to 360, a large overhaul to their engine and its only to be seen on console.
And even if other Companys cross-plattform titles will feature UE3.5 it tells you something about Epics priorities if they are not the company that bring it to PC via a own title.
