No new Unreal Tournament planned for UE4, Epic says.

Epic says it has several projects on the go, but none of them involve Unreal Tournament.

Don't warm up your translocator just yet: Epic Games has said it's not currently developing a new Unreal Tournament game, nor does it have any plans to.

"We're not [planning on] shipping an Unreal Tournament game," said Epic boss Tim Sweeney said at a panel during GDC 2014, reported by CVG.

"We have a lot of nostalgia for the game," added Sweeney, "but we're actually not developing anything in the Unreal game universe at all at the moment."

What is Epic currently working on, then? "We've announced Fortnite... That's a game we'll be talking about later."

Later as in, this week? "We don't have anything to show you here at GDC." Oh well.

"There are several other projects that aren't announced yet that are being developed with Unreal Engine 4," Sweeney also said.

Epic's big announcement for GDC 2014 was that it is unveiling a new licensing model for Unreal Engine 4, allowing developers to subscribe for $19 a month.

I tweeted Epic Games. If there not going to to work on a new unreal. Rename the damn engine. jeez I don't know name it gears of war engine then. Also give the Unreal/UT Intellectual Property (game license) to some one else to developed and make for us Unreal fans.

Man this sucks for me. I loved Unreal Tournament 3 on the PS3, and was really looking forward to 4. I really hope they get this out by the time I'm ready to get a PS4.

Holy shit... this is bad.


No need to make a new game, just remake ut2004 on the new engine. its all the people want. I've always seen UT as your show case for your engines :/


Maybe they will allow the community to remake the game FOR them ???

Fantastic video.

All the kiddies should have been taking notes on what a real FPShooter should be. None of this pay-to-play crap where you can't even host your own server.

I'm sorry, but Titanfall will die unceremoniously when the servers are re-purposed.

Most depressing news I've read in a while. With as well as competitive FPS games sell nowadays, I'm not sure why they wouldn't be making one.

Shame, Unreal III was a real treat & the first good console port of the PC version (PS3) using mods and keyboard/ mouse control.

UT3 flopped because instead of expanding on UT2k4, it reduced "gameplay" in just about every aspect of the game. Then Epic and Cliffy got all butthurt about it and accused PC gamers of being pirates and became a console game developer.

The changes they introduced to UT3 made ME, a casual gamer, flinch. I can only imagine how floored the actual FPS veterans were.


A game similar to UT can exist, but a developer like Epic is no longer capable of making it. I wouldn't be surprised if an indie dev is making something close, but it still needs to be discovered.

Epic you just lost all the respect by saying that you have no intentions to do anything Unreal.


Cliffy come and save us already..

Partially, but atleast he realized the thing how he had helped destroying everything and therefore resigned. Now i don't see Epic resigning and therefore Cliffy B is the lesser evil in this. Cliff has even stated that he has interest in making a "fastpaced proper PC Shooter", whereas Epic just stated that they have interest in continuing cash-grab console games and game engine. The complete opposite.

UT 3 was kinda marketed badly , it was incomplete and the recommended system requirements were way too high for the time. That's why it was unsuccessful. But a well made UT would definitely sell if they focus on the hardcore PC gaming crowd.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I'm sure it was because UT3 had lost focus, and that they were trying to push a story with the game. And yes, the game wasn't focused at the PC crowd either.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> UT3 always did feel pretty off to me. The weapon balancing wasn't as good as 2004 or UT99.


Plus, the artstyle was godawful. They took away the beautiful Goth/Sci-Fi style and replaced with with the Gears of War aesthetic.

No unreal game for UE4, I guess its ok, but instead of that give us a game that will prove to be more enjoyable. You are free to pick the genre, just don't mess it up.

Well this blows. UT used to be my favourite game franchise, but it's been soooooo long since we had a new game that it's slipped in the rankings.

I was still waiting for a reboot of the original Unreal, but I guess that's never going to happen. :(

I hope the people complaining aren't the same people that trash talked and didn't buy UT3, because it's your fault.

I bought UT3, but it never ran well and I didn't like the GoW art style. I bought it even after the awful reviews, just to support the series.

I own all the UT games except Unreal 2 The Awakening and Return to Na Pali expansion pack to Unreal.

Like i should have bought some UT3 that was their attempt to convert Unreal into some weird Gears by being all brown and dumbed down? Rocketlauncher can't launch 5 rockets anymore but only 3 now instead? Rocket launcher can't shoot grenades at all but only either fire a single rocket or shoot three rockets? Yeah, no thanks..
