    Howdy strangers!

    We all know how comments can be misinterpreted, but our good friend Mark Rein, head-chieftan at Epic Games, seems pretty clear in his tweet:

    Barring anything tragic -- like Unreal Tournament mobile edition -- I'm completely down for a reboot. I can't wait to see what announcement is coming next week.

    As long it's not mobile/console/free2play/microtransactions/seasonpass driven undertaking, I'm excited.

    Screw UT. Unreal 3 please. Would like sp+coop like Unreal1 and xmp like Unreal 2, but of course, it's wishful thinking to expect that in this day and age from the likes of Epic.

    Those newbie Twitter kiddies. Not a single "two weeks" reply? That's mandatory since UT2003!

    This. But hey, as long as there is something, I'll be happy.

    It's funny, just yesterday I was like "hey, my UT3 vehicle backport to UT2004 mod is progressing nicely, but I don't want to think about what would happen if UT4 was released with the same amount of content", and lo and behold...

    Oh, also: https://twitter.com/PaulMeegan/statuses/462341620634238976

    I hope this doesn't mean people get the bare bones of a game with the mission to complete it themselves. Because I sense something like that in the pipes.
    My thought exactly. Tchoo tchoo, all aboard and try not to think this will get in the same basket as UT3!

    A re-skinned '99/2k4 with no UT3 clutter or movement nerfs + Titanfallesque wall running/parkour elements could work.

    I'm not holding my breath though.

    Heh. Cliffy leaves and now they want to do a new UT? Sure ok guys.

    While I wouldn't be surprised if they go the TF2 model with this, I'm definitely expecting it to be optimized for consoles. I know the pendulum is swinging back to PC right now, but unless Epic is self-publishing I expect we'll see a console version.

    This announcement should also have information on their Gamespy replacement they're working on internally since the timing lines up with what Mark said regarding a reveal for that.

    Other than that, cautiously optimistic but I've got my ticket for the disappointment train ready.

    EDIT:

    It'd be funny if this is the project Cliffy's been working on independently.

    What 720p upscaled to 900p at 30 frames per second doesn't ring your bell?

    Still, I am hoping for a PC only version.
