Today, EBGames.com has reported on its front page that Unreal Tournament 2003 has gone gold, meaning the game is complete and being prepared for distribution. In recent months, EBGames has been the first to report that several major games were complete, including Warcraft III and Neverwinter Nights.
An Infogrames representative denied that the game is complete, telling GameSpot that EBGames.com has prematurely reported on "gone gold" announcements before and dismissing the report as a "rumor." The recently released
Unreal Tournament 2003 is still officially scheduled for release in the third quarter of this year, which would conventionally suggest a release before the start of October. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the game.
