UT:XMP for future UT releases?

    Some of us are wondering if UT:XMP will be re-released for all the yearly/bi-yearly UT releases, just like other mods have done (examples are Red Orchestra, Frag Ops, Deathball, etc). Does FMI even own the "XMP" rights necessary to make UT:XMP for future UT releases? There was a rumor that Epic might be reserving the XMP name as a gametype for a future UT release.

    This is now a bigger question as the reality of the next UT is becoming more apparent. Link with info here:

    i don't see any real reason why ut:xmp wouldin't go to the next build of ut2k4... after all, it'll give mappers better workflow, and overall they can do tons more :D
    ( and plus, bots should be a bit easier to work with :lol: ):tup:

    Well, I guess I was really wanting to hear yes/no, does FMI have the rights to 'XMP' for future UT releases, or is Epic reserving the rights?

    "potentially as large as three onslaught maps with assault-like objectives and even a form of limited resource management planned"

    "players will battle on one of two teams, each sides terriroty will look physically different, as you take a territory it will convert to the otherteams structures and physical surroundings"

    "conquest should appeal to a wider gaming audience and provide a place where longer-term strategy, teamwork, and face-to-face fragging all meet"

    *cough* XMP *cough*

    Well, if you cannot think of anything good yourself, you might aswell, dump the Masterserver, drop support, disband Legend, hope the original dissapears from memory and then steal it.

    Or you can double check your facts and find out that Epic has gotten the master server up more than once, not to mention the fact that they're under Midway now.

    Well, that certainly has helped the 30 people that are left in u2xmp.

    Or maybe it will either be included as an "envy" gametype (with FMI at the helm ;)), or even as a multiplayer part of Unreal3 (if they decide to make one...)
