    You wish ...

    On the contrary, it's a spam ...

    They already tried to fix UT3 -didn't worked ...
    Second: perfect for who? Old players likes UT, the middle UT2k4 and the youngest are asking for UT3 Vanilla version. So you can forget about "perfect Unreal Tournament".

    If this will happen (I doubt ...), it will be UT3-like console exclusive game.

    I know there's a 95% chance that any further attempt at Unreal Tournament will result in a colossal miscarriage of a game, but reading this has still set my heart aflutter. What if EPIC took a defibrillator to PC gaming with a purebred PC flagship like the flagships of old.

    More like Gears of Unreal War, now in third person with awesome cover based combat.

    Based on the opening line of your post, I'm not really anticipating any kind of comprehensible response, but: why exactly was UT2003 a 'fail'. UT2004 was nothing but a stand alone expansion for it.

    Who wants to bet this was in the plans for a while but not really revealed until a convenient moment comes and a "prototype" or something is advanced enough. So those denials of no ut2015 etc were lies in the end or something? *scratches head* Or careful wording, like "Epic had nothing to do with spreading this on that site", though that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I mean I'm refering to the whole Unreal Tournament 2015 news/thread.
    Well whatever the case I sure hope it's something worth it even if it's UT and not something else Unreal for a change.

    Yea im thinking/hoping this too.

    Epic releases the core weapons (maybe leaving out one weapon for a Star Citizen TNGS ripoff show) and one/two maps for each gametype.
    Then the rest of the content is made by UE4 Dev community+Epic.
    Official servers= Approved maps and mutators
    Client servers (i really hope this works this time)= Any maps/mutators goes.

    After all Epic will want this to show off their shiny Engine.

    Yea, to you maybe but im pretty sure we can agree on that this announcement is not about Epic making an Official Unreal Tournament 4 with tons of gametypes and maps.

    I agree, but I wonder if it's for the same reasons. Why do you dislike that idea?

    Yes, indeed.

    Mang Nux: Couldn't explain in details. Crowdsourcing the making of a game to such a bipolar community as Unreal has (the great UT2004/UT99 schism, it's like a religious difference nowadays)... I'm not too optimisic. On top of that, I can easily imagine the game being turned into a huge experimenting-ground for UE4 stuff instead of an actual game, and the idea that the game is not actually "complete" when it comes out, well I think that sucks. That's what happenned for UT2003 and UT3 (the last one even had a message "if you think things are missing, make them" at some point by Epic), and look how well it turned out. UT2004 had to be build on the ruins and UT3 had to get actual bonus packs to have its CTF-Face. It looks like people will make great things on a complete game, but are unable to make the game from scratch.
    I also dislike the idea of making people build your game for you, on a more ethical standpoint.
    This and many other things. I don't like the idea generally, but I don't want to write a complete wall of text.

    Also, UT2003 a fail? Wasn't it like a huge success back in the days before everyone decided it wasn't UT99-enough? Unlike say UT3 which actually sold poorly on PC (also, UT2003 was good, you should eat it).

    Hey, you should've said at least something to fuel the hype!

    It's not going to be another AAA title developed completely by Epic. They are primarily working on Fortnite and were telling the truth when they said they had no plans to revisit the game. The stream is the same stream they use every week for their Unreal Engine podcast. It's going to be an Unreal Engine community project.

    I also doubt we make a completely new UT game. I'd prefer that it just be UT99 HD with maybe a tweak or two to balance for modern pings. But then again why not go all out and make the Unreal Warfare MMO? Yeah, I bet it's just an HD remix.

    That's the second thought that came to mind after reading "Epic announces UT will return!"

    The first one was a clusterfuck of "please don't make this another stupid art-driven area shooter"

    At least they will have changed their minds then about the community making a UT game. Wasn't that previously forbidden with UDK?

    That UT99 image in Mark Rein's tweet makes me hope the announcement will have something to do with that and not 2k4/UT3. It would be great if Epic would let the community do an Unreal remake as well.

    If they're truly following the Valve model, it wont kill free content at all. People are still completely free to mod the hell out of the game and run all the custom levels they want on their servers.

    Plz. I would actually really like to see UT99 made in UE4, but I don't want another Facing Worlds 3.

    Could be related to Open Tournament as the project has been given the GO by Epic's legal department. Reply from Alexander Paschall here.

    Good call. It would explain MR using the old UT shot in the tweet and be a great way to promote UE4.

    Now I'm afraid the extent of this announcement will basically be a shoutout/blessing with some mindless jabber and reminiscing?

    There's a conflict: Paschall's response says the OT guys cannot use any trademarked or copyrighted content, and that the game can be a spiritual successor only. That is nothing new, as that was the position of Epic when they first released UDK.

    I'd guess it'll be free to play and people will have to buy an UE4 subscription to mod it. I doubt they spend the resources to develop a nerfed free Editor version for a new UT game this time. Creating a marketplace to sell stuff would be kind of tricky since any major update to the Engine might break what you're trying to sell if they don't update the UT game at the same time. Epic or someone will probably release a simple publishing plugin for the game. I'd like to see how they will deal with cheating since they're pretty much handing over the keys to anyone with 20 bucks to burn.

    I'd also wager that they're just taking UT3 assets and doing a little work to update it all to UE4. That doesn't mean it'll play the same, but it makes sense to do that instead of spending years developing new artwork. Especially if it's meant to be a marketing platform that doesn't rely on game sales.
