No "specific release date" for 360 UT

Epic's Mark Rein has re-confirmed that he erm, cannot confirm a solid release date for Unreal Tournament III on Xbox 360.

"We don't have a specific release date yet," the Epic VP told CVG, in response to magazine reports to the contrary. "Right now we're finishing up the European PS3 version."

It was released on the PlayStation 3 last month in North America but there's still no European date and no word on how much lead Sony will have over the Xbox 360 version.

The only lead that the PS3 version will have on the 360 version is what MS give them.
It'll be interesting to see how much MS dig their feet in on this mods issue and allowing user content.

Kleptic3401d ago

exactly...this is all MS's doing...if they open it up, there will most likely be a 360 UT3 before the end of Spring...if not...who knows...

this game is growing on me like crazy though...I liked it from the beginning...but I am safely addicted...I am finally finding out all the crazy ass stuff each vehicle has (been in a Leviathan yet with 4 other dudes?...holy shat...its crazier than a fully loaded dropship in warhawk)...

I have finally gotten used to health packs again...in Q3 and earlier UT games I would memorize where the health was before the weapons...but for the past 3 years I haven't been playing much of anything that didn't have some sort of health regen system...its nice to get back to stealing kills constantly...can't wait for some mods though...and also to figure out just what is going on with the Midway servers...sometimes there are over 10 per game type, and others there are like 3 in deathmatch only...doesn't make sense, but so far those are the only servers to be entirely lagless in warfare with 16 players...and most maps are too big for 8 player warfare...

yeah, I'm waiting for it to come out in the UK....really looking forward to it as I think I over did it on COD4 during the break.

Why the disagrees?
I'm just saying that MS have full control over this matter, so its up to them how this plays out.

Feihc Retsam3401d ago

I can stand to play COD4 for quite a while.

Yea no worries it's not that the 360 really needs UT3 any time soon.

The-Only-Truth3401d ago

Relax Rein, no one wants UT3 for the 360 anyways.

Just drop this project and pump all the extra effort in GOW2.

Thank you !

They really hurt themselves by not releasing this on the Xbox 360 at the same time as the PS3, this game bombed pretty hard especially compared to the success Epic just had a little over a year ago when they partnered with Microsoft for the Xbox 360 for Gears of War.

I think that the hype for this game is dead now and that the 360 version will not sell anywhere near the potential it could have had for both Epic and Midway.

I played the hell out of UT2k4 on PC but honestly I dont really have any plan to purchase UT3 or give it another look

It's time to move on and get to work on Gears of War 2, which will easily sell millions

how did it bomb when its only released in north america.me and my friend baught it.its a fun game single player suck but multiplayer is the #hit.u guys should get it when it comes to 360

decapitator3401d ago

Mass Effect had a world wide release, and sold over a milion after its first week. This game was released only in the US and it has sold over 300, 000 copies since. Mind, you this is only in the US with a user base of about 3.50 Million., I say, thats pretty darn good.

I played this game at a friends house, it definitly fun, but its funner on pc since you actually have a keyboard and mouse(which you can use on ps3 but usually the game is for pc as well if it plays well with k&m), on controller its kinda hard.

Sez 3401d ago

did NPD release their number already.

If only you really understood the industry wasn't about pleasing the needs of a simple minded fanatic such as yourself.
