The good news is Unreal Tournament is still being targeted for a holiday release. The bad news is that holiday is Valentine's Day, 2004. Atari sent out a small release today confirming that the next installment in Epic games' shooter series won't be out until next February.
While Epic had never made an official announcement that the game was to come out this year, Atari admitted that "the game was previously slated for release during the 2003 holiday season."
