Unreal Tournament III on PS3 back in 2007 (2008 for 360) was the last time we saw a major release in Epic's Unreal franchise. Fans have been patiently waiting as the North Carolina-based studio continued to pump its resources into the blockbuster Gears of War trilogy, which concludes this holiday season. But what's next? Will Epic return to the franchise that shares its name with the company's middleware business? Judging by recent comments, we think there's a good chance.
