According to a forum posting by Mark Rein himself, Unreal Tournament 3 may not come out in November as thought. It looks like they are shooting for November, but it is not set in stone. More after the jump.
It looks like they are shooting for November
"We do not know exactly when the game will be completed. All we've said is that we're hoping for a November release but as you know we value getting it right over getting it right now so there's no guarantee of that."
THATS EXACTLY WHAT MARK REIN SAYS PS3 FANS NO WORRIES :)
Will suck if it doesn't come this year.
Yea I figure I would get bored form Haze, warhawk, and Call of Duty 4 by then and jump over to this game....
Like Mark said before,
"We are cramming as much stuff in this game as possible."
I'd love it, if Mark put a secret Cross-platform(360vsPS3) surprise for Spring. Supposedly he was talking about the possibilities, and that its possible if the Companies would allow it. If 360 players cam play against PC users and PS3 Players can play against PC users....
Hmmm. Boy would Microsoft and Sony be P.O'd if he did that ;)
Just a Rumor though...........or is it?
It would be ironic if its delayed till early 2008 like the 360 version. Interesting indeed.
Go play Gay-lo
ill play gay-lo if you play gayir
I'll play Gayir if you play Biocock (not saying Bioshock is a bad game but I had to say something)
its like every week we here about another PS3 delay
how bout this...for the release dates of all your antivipated games...add 4-8 weeks...you shud be fine
u guys do understand the ps3 version is way farther in development than the 360 version. they started on ps3 version and are then gonna go onto 360 version.
if the PS3/PC game gets delayed...the 360 version does also...at least according to what Rein said before...something along the lines of them not focusing on the 360 version until the PS3/PC versions are out the door...
and there is still that whole mess with XBL and the user content...there has yet to be a confirmation of what exactly has been done about that...
Go back to your Gayzone2 and stay there.
All I had to do was read the title and I knew some idiot would blame the PS3.
"Unreal Tournament may not come out in November as thought. It looks like they are shooting for November, but it is not set in stone" ????
Ok Let us in on it when is it coming out!!!!
LMAO! that's a nice "timed exclusive."
of course i might be delayed.... even us cavemen know that almost all games on the ps3 get delayed....
Damn, did you even read the article? Does not mention possible platform specific delay.
Cavemen are NOT stupid. All's you're doing is feeding the stereotype.
It must stay a timed exclusive. Didnt Sony and Epic have an agreement that was announced?
+, have they even satrted on 360 version ?
There is no exclusivity agreement between Sony and Epic. The simple truth is that Halo 3 would crush UT3 sales on 360. That is why it is delayed on 360.
It makes sense for Epic to bring it to PS3 since there is much less competition on that platform.
:0 Ohh no, i have to wait longer?? You know, it didnt say which version was the cause of the delay, so i think its funny when all of you take stabs saying that all ps3 games get delayed when the cause of this could be anything....
So the pc version is still on track?
no, it would not be funny if it was launched with the 360 version.
Me love cookies!!!MMMMM
lol, yeah Mark Rein just said it isn't set in stone.
How come that turns out in a rumour about it possibly being delayed? Every game can be delayed if we think about it...nothing guarantees it will come out on the exact date it was supposed to come out on.
Epic is just making sure everyone understands that a delay isn't impossible...really nothing to see here.
Okay if it's delayed that's fine.
I'd rather buy a completed game then buy a game because they needed to meet the release date and have to wait for a patch for it all to work
because the x360 version is uncompleted it would mean it would get pushed back even more than the PS3 version. After all Mark did say they would start on the x360 version after the PS3 version.
Hey, turbo you do know the 360 version doesn't come out until next year...you know now. This delay has nothing to do with the 360 version.
The 360 build is up and running and was on the cover of Xbox Magazine before all the PS3 version stuff came up. The editors were at Epic and were having multi player battles. The lead designer said they are using the 360 as the graphics bar and were more concerned with the PC version running smoothly on lower spec PC's.
The 360 version isn't coming out until next year for two reasons. Sony made a limited exclusiveness deal and there were some problems with some digital distribution or something or the other on the 360 side. Now I believe all three are being developed simultaneously, with the 360 probably being halted temporarily in order to finish the PS3 and PC builds, much like what Ubi did with Graw 2.
where are you guys reading this?
every recent interview with Rein has always pointed to the main reason the 360 version being delayed is because of XBL...Epic simply opened the door to some exlusitivity for Sony...and Sony took the bate...and also helped them with optimizing UE 3 for the PS3 by the help of some PS3 "experts"...
Epic has been saying for a long time that they wanted to set a standard for visuals on the PS3...just like they did on the 360 with Gears...in several interviews as late as last May, Rein was saying that they felt they had already made a impact with the 360 crowd, and were focusing heavily on the PS3 for UT3...
Epic has never once said UT3 on the 360 was farther along in development...or that it was the graphics "bar"...or that its on any similar level to the PS3 or PC...they have only stated that the user generated content issues have caused them to focus on the other platforms first...while things get worked out with them and XBL...
in my opinion they want to make it PERFECT .. and attract other PS3 devs to use their optimized ENGINE for ps3...
just wait and see.. may be its impossible to see 60 FPS.. but its obvious to see 30 FPS locked with GODLIKE visuals.. same as PC version on 3000$ PC
good luck EPIC.. many pc gamers cant buy that PC .. make them happy .. Im spending almost my money 3000$ on a Laptop.. so Im one of those people that havent money for a Monster Desktop PC .
more like $1400 if you build the rig yourself...but I see your point...
I personaly didnt want Haze and UT3 to come out on the same day, so that makes my decision all the easier :D
of course it would suck for die hard UT fans, so for their sake I hope it makes its release date
us all talking about it again. Good job Epic, mission accomplished.
Sony only people need to STFU! This is supposed to be a top exclusive for the PS3. Now a delay? Please.
Also, a rep said its running smooth on the PS3, so now what?
Lol. Rein is just covering his ass from the fire of angry fans if a delay ever occurs. Also, a lot of you guys should learn how to freaking read. There is no mention of platform of course, so Mark Rein was speaking about a possible PC/PS3 delay. Jesus christ. How ignorant can some people be?
I kinda hope it gets delayed. More time for Warhawk! =D! Also, if it gets delayed, means they wont have a rusty UT3, when they could've delayed it and have less bugs at launch. I think Warhawk could've been delayed atleast another week, it launched with alot of bugs, and not enough ranked servers. Coulda had some more!!
Oh well, what happens happens, cant do anything about it
You'se dont even know if it is delayed. Its never had an exact release date and shooting or aiming for November is all they've ever said. We'll have it before Christmas for sure if not November. Thats all I care about.
it happens on every system.
Look at GTA4 and your 360
im not really mad about this and the fact that it is going head to head with COD Modern Combat they really should make sure its perfect.
no big deal in my eyes
Just so long as it isnt delayed for more then 4 months! Well even that would be alright because i would be sick of Call of Duty by then and i should have all the medals one man/women can have in Warhawk
put the link to the forum posting by Mark Rein. Why is this just a blog from one guy that says he read the comment. Be a real news guy and get the right link!
If you want to make this site worthy of anything make sure you use the words of the REAL ppl that said it!
i want UNREAL TOURNY 3 for x-mas !!!
I can't keep buying a new PS3 game evry 3 days. This way it gives me a little break.
wow, u must have a lot of sucky games eh? Flame on biatches!!! Sucks if it gets delayed, unlike you I dont buy any crap that comes out, really want a big fatass game to make my ps3 useful (not into getting pwned a gazillion times in warhawk). Sigma is starting to get tiresome...
I actually kinda hope this gets pushed back to X-mas. Since COD4 and Unreal tournament 3 come out at a very close time to each other I won't have money for both. So if this happens then I could collect for Unreal 3 a little while after.
This links to a forum post? How to we really know this is true? the links go to a site that has no links. And how do we really know it's Mark Rein?
I'll already be playing Call of Duty 4 on either 360/PS3, so this will just give me some extra play time with that game. I'm glad the PS3 game library is picking up.
