    I'm guessing it's going to be called something like UT:Evolution or some crap, but I hope it's just UT3.

    UT3 would be good imo :)

    As said it would fit in with the engine name :tup:

    Um, I'm hoping for Unreal Tournament 3 as this goes along with the game engines/map file extensions. But what I think will really happen is a silly two-part name like UT: Envy or maybe even UT: SGBG (same game better graphics).;)

    So, my vote goes to Unreal Tournament: Envy!

    EDIT: You can't call it UT2 when the map file extensions for UT2003 and UT2004 are .ut2................this would be very confusing. Just think of it as UT2 was already released as UT2003 and it was just OK and UT2004 was released as an expansion pack for UT2 and made it a lot better. Why don't they just call it BeyondUnreal? :D

    I think if they are trying to go back to the original style they should go with UT2. This will press the fact that they have learned a lot, enough so to release another "real" unreal tournament for all the UT99 fans who hated UT2kx. All of us who currently play the game are going to buy the next one, so I don't think they have to worry about losing any customers over name, so they might as well do something that will attract attention.

    i bet its gunna be called Unreal Tournament 2003. i mean how could that ever be wrong?
    if not that then probably UT: For Free.

    UT2 would make sense, except that they've already done it. UT2003 was originally going to be called UT2 but they changed it for whatever reasons. The map file extensions are .ut2 if that's any sort of clue, and both UT2003 and UT2004 use that extension, so from that, and the version number of the engine each game is running on, we can derive this:

    UT1 = UT
    UT2 = UT2003
    UT2.5 = UT2004
    UT3 = Envy

    It just makes the most sense.

    UT3 > All

    I'm hoping they just stick to Unreal Tournament 3. The numerical part gives it a bit more history, and makes it clearer that the game is part of a long line of UT games, rather than some confused, abiguous name (see below).

    That's what I was thinking. I'd be a fairly bad move in my opinion. As long as it's not "Unreal Tournament: Vengeance" (right, Tribes fans?) :lol:

    I would like it to be called Unreal Tournament 3 (UT3).
    For some reason, I think that Epic will actualy give this game a good name.
    :rolleyes:

    hmmm, I'm with SkaarjMaster & co. on this one. The sensible and best option imo would be UT3 but I can just see some "marketing genious" insisting on a crappy 2 part name.

    Seriously doubt it would ever be UT2. For one it would prolly cause too much confustion with UT2k3 and 2k4 and also epic already said they named UT2003 like they did because they wanted to avoid confustion with Unreal 2 which was out at the time.

    Or maybe they should "do a winamp" and call it UT5 :D

    Perhaps they could enlist the same marketing genius who named the third Thief game (Thief: Deadly Shadows):

    Unreal Tournament: Deadly Weapons

    :stick:

    OK, slightly surreal there...

    God, it'd be a dull game if they weren't deadly.

    Unreal Tournament: Slight Chafing
    Unreal Tournament: A Bit Cross
    Unreal Tournament: Kiss and Make Up

    Yeah, I'm still wondering why Eidos/ISA didn't just go with Thief: Cozy Shadows. ;)

    I hope it's simply UT3 or UT4, and get rid of all those extra stuff that makes it harder to pronounce.

    Nevertheless...here are a couple suggestions:
    -Unreal Tournament: vehicle necromancy
    -Battlefield UT (companies can't claim the word 'battlefield', can they?)
    -UT: Malcolm strikes back (or..."black")
    -Unreal: the return of the Tournament
    -Unrealer Tournament

    :lol:

    Unreal Warfare is not really Unreal Tournament, is it? :p ... Unreal Tournament: Warfare makes more sence. But I hope its not going to be a 2 name game. I want a simple UTX X = number(2, or 3, or 4)
