"Be still, my heart. Epic Games vice president Mark Rein has posted the words on Twitter I've been waiting years for: Unreal Tournament is coming back. We don't know what form it will take, but Rein followed up his original tweet "I love Unreal Tournament, so excited for the comeback" with a confirmation-"Yes UT coming back!"-and a link to Epic's Unreal Engine Twitch account, where the future of Unreal Tournament will be revealed Thursday, May 8 at 2PM EST.

Since Epic plans to unveil its plans for Unreal Tournament on the Unreal Engine Twitch channel, and not the Epic Games channel, we can make a few guesses about the game. It may be a showpiece for Unreal Engine 4 in the way Gears of War was for Unreal Engine 3. It may simply be a tech demo for Unreal Engine 4 and not a full game. Wouldn't that be a drag.

Another tweet from Epic's Paul Meegan makes us think this is more than a throwaway project. "UE4 Dev Community + Epic. The future of Unreal Tournament," he tweeted:

The future of Unreal Tournament could be on consoles or-dare I say it-mobile. Don't make us play Unreal Tournament on iPhones, Epic. Don't you dare. Give us a new game on PC, whether it's a Quake Live-style update of classic UT or a Unreal Engine 4 juggernaut.

In the meantime, we'll be over here playing UT2004 at 4K. There are still busy servers out there, and the game looks pretty damn good a decade later."


I spent a whole lot of hours on UT3 when I first got into PC gaming and a new UT couldn't come soon enough

Since the partial acquisition by Tencent Epic has lost CliffyB a couple of key people and Gears of War. To be honest I thought they'd solely go down the route of engine developing. I hope this is a full on UT game using UE4.

New Unreal Tournament has just been announced - Free on PC, Mac and Linux

Development starts today and will be developed in collaboration with gamers/fans

They reckon it won't be F2P - it'll be totally FREE with the community making/creating in game items to sell so Epic will take a cut of each sale - sounds very Team Fortress 2

This would be a game i would be very interested in. Most F2Pay/Play games are shocking lately, both in terms of gameplay and £££.

If they do it right, i'd play this alot!

Can't say that I've actually played any F2P games, well none that I can think of.

I have Loadout and Warframe installed but haven't got round to playing them yet although I've heard good things about both.

Still, a F2P game run by the community could be awesome if it works, fingers crossed...
