Epic Hints At Eventual Unreal Return

There was a time in the industry's history (and it wasn't that long ago) when the name "Unreal" was synonymous with FPS. This generation's shooter war is between Call of Duty and Battlefield; in the '90s, there was once a war between Unreal Tournament and Quake.

And the iconic fast-paced franchise did have an impact on each PlayStation generation. UT was a launch title for the PS2 and Unreal Tournament III actually hit the PS3 first back in 2007. Yes, it's true; there was a multiplatform shooter that 360 owners had to wait for.

But since that time, we've heard nothing from the UT series. Thing is, developer Epic Games has been cranking on their new award-winning franchise this generation, Gears of War. Will they ever come back to Unreal? Well, Epic President Mike Capps gave fans hope via IndustryGamers:

"We have a couple other major franchises that we've not been paying attention to. It's been a long time since we shipped an Unreal game, and it's an awfully loved franchise that we hold pretty dear here. We haven't been giving it the attention it deserves because we've been focusing on Gears of War and we're still a relatively small company."

He adds that going back to Unreal "just makes plain business sense" and of course, every company needs to make money. Capps said the team has been focusing on new IPs lately (Bulletstorm, Shadow Complex, etc.) but from a business standpoint, they should spend more time with their existing franchises. After all, that's where the money is.

We definitely want a new UT. It's one of those old-fashioned styles of shooter that doesn't take itself seriously at all. It's just runnin' 'n gunnin' at its best.

I been hooked on the Unreal Tournament series since it first launched back in '98 or '99. Will happily pick up a new one if they make it. And the PC got UT3 first. The PS3 version was a month or so later.

Might not to you Ben, but the PC version of Unreal was a pretty insane game. For someone who just wrote an article about how MP-centric games have become, the downward spiral of the UT series is a pretty good example of it.

The original Unreal's were a group of really great games, that actually had great story lines and the combat wasn't all botfests like the more recent entree's to the franchise.

The only way I'd be interested in a new Unreal is if they went back to their roots and went SP-centric.

To be fair though, UT3's custom map uploading utility for the PS3 wouldn't have done very much good without the PC version. ;)

The original Unreal games weren't all that great. The original Unreal started off strong but then became bland and monotonous early on. And Unreal 2 was good but not particularly great, as other competitors hit the scene making it look a bit out of date in design. It looked nice though.

UT2 had a *huge* community, Temjin, where most played on custom servers. I myself became a part of one of the sniper communities with maps and game rules tailored for sniping gameplay. It was a total blast and they kept going on UT2 long after UT3 were released.

Kinda makes me miss those days :(

@ Beamboom: Yeah, UT's modder community was actually pretty substantial, loved the custom maps. Some were pretty awesome!

@ Temjin001: To each their own, I suppose. But, I definitely disagree with you, the original Unreal games were awesome.

Now that you mention it I suddenly realized: Was there ever a game named "Unreal Tournament 2"? Wasn't it's name "Unreal Tournament 2004" or something like that?
And before that one named UT2001, but both based on the same engine, U2?

Man my basic PC gaming knowledge is getting worryingly rusty here!

Leave it to someone in the 'media' once again trying to divide gamer's up, by trashing a platform he doesn't choose to partake in.

Oh and Mornelithe. No, no I rebuke to each their own. It is now To Temjin all will agree. =p

It was a joke. It only proves that that the PC fanboys can't TAKE a joke. It's fun to assume I know nothing about the platform, too.

And there is no bashing in the article. There's praise for UT but of course, you ignore that. You also added an unnecessary insult by putting "media" in quotations. At the same time, I can easily predict your posts, my friend. You somehow manage to work the PC into the majority of them, and ALL with this little subtle elitist tone. It isn't hard to spot the PC fanboys. They all have egos the size of Montana. Hence, the "media" in quotations. PC fanboys are smarter than...well, everybody on planet earth.

.....sounds like insecurity to me, "buddy."

I was wondering how this would pan out. lol.

Definitely interested to see if the PC-crowd can top that one.

As for me, I have a few games on PC I enjoy. I played Fable on PC, I own Halo 1 and 2 for PC, I have a Prince of Persia game, I have a few Age of Empires and Civilization games, FFXI and FFXIV, and a gog account. Gotta say though... definitely prefer the consistency of a console.

Oh yeah... PC gamers definitely have an air of elitist attitude around most of them, whether they realize it or not. Just an observation, and not necessarily about anyone here. But it's definitely there in abundance.

@Mornelithe
How did you not realize he was joking? lol

P.S. how did I forget Lords of the Realm 2? I -STILL- play that game.

Sorry Ben, if that's a joke, then you need to come up with new material, because you're about as played as Seinfeld. Is there anything else to your act, or is it just wall to wall PC hate?

Know what else is fun? Reading words in someone's post that weren't there. Did I say you knew nothing about the platform? Hmm?? Point it out. Where did I say it? I'm assuming you're taking this from another conversation, because I quite obviously didn't assert anything regarding your knowledge of the platform, beyond 'a platform he doesn't choose to partake in.' I guess we all read things differently. O.o

Did I say there was bashing in the article? Nope. Did I even really pointedly call you out other than to say that while you may not think so, the original titles were amazing? Nope.

Unfortunately, you reverted to your well-used repertoire of slamming anyone who has ever enjoyed a PC Game as being a PC elitist. You see how I'm not really interjecting my preference into these conversations unless the actual conversation specifically requires it? I'm not trying to ram it down peoples throats, unlike you.

If you have a problem with me putting the 'media' in quotations. Stop making yourself part of that particular 'media', by creating strife where there need not be. You actually write quite well, and typically I enjoy your articles. The endless vitriol against PC is a bit absurd though.

And golly gee, I sure is sorry that I couldn't talk about a franchise that originally started on PC, having played every iteration from PC to console...without having uttered the two words PC. You're right man, I'm just devious that way.

See, I don't care what everyone plays...that's their deal, I've spent enough time trying to explain my position, that...it's really almost like a religious debate. It doesn't matter what I believe, or know, anymore than it matters what you believe or know. It's about what you find entertaining. I get my entertainment from PC, PS3, 360 (Pinball mostly), PS2 and PS1. My knowledge of games and the history of gaming, come from those platforms as well as a great many others I owned and enjoyed over the years, and considering PC's had a big hand in the gaming industry for decades. You should expect from time to time, that someone is going to inadvertently let the cat out of the bag, and remind people that some franchises did actually start on PC, and were allot of fun to play. Is that some carefully worded slant to consoles? Pro PC talk? Nope. Just acknowledging a franchise that was pretty sweet back in the day.

So sorry if that bothers you, but...that's how it is. Some games did start on PC.

@ Underdog15: He wasn't joking, he always gets his jabs in on PC's. He's been doing it for quite some time.

1. Nobody created "strife" but you. There is no bait whatsoever in the article, so the "media," as I was so nicely called, didn't do anything to create "strife." You just think it did, because you desperately have to defend the PC at every turn.

2. I never "trashed" any platform. The ONLY thing in the article is PRAISE for Unreal. And the comment was a JOKE. Note this- ;) See, you knew it was a joke and yet, you couldn't help yourself. The precious PC needed defending!

3. No article exists on PSXE that "bashes" PC or PC gaming. And yet, you seem to feel the need to "point out" certain things ALL the time. Would you like me to generate an actual percentage of your posts at this site where you mention the PC? You likely wouldn't want that; it's so insane, nobody would believe you played anything BUT PC.

3. You're a PC elitist. Nothing you ever post proves otherwise. Yeah, I'll call them out as I'll call out all the idiot gamers who claim to be better than everyone else on a continual basis, and absolutely refuse to concede a single solitary point about their preferred platform.

You can claim a non-bias all you want. You can insult me all you want. Your post history is your post history. That's not really up for debate. You absolutely positively cannot help promoting or defending the PC. So you can pretend all you wish...I can read.

If you'd like to be viewed differently, perhaps you should try a new "act."

P.S. Holy sh**, that percentage of your posts that mention the PC is actually even higher than I thought. It's freakin' funny as hell. Nooooo, you're not biased at all. LMAO

*rolls eyes* The strife, I was referring to, as is typically always the case with you, are the comments you make, about PC gaming, and PC gamer's. I guess you missed the part where I said I typically enjoy your articles. It's really what you say in the comments section that goes completely off-topic. Point out where I 'defended' the PC, by saying Unreal was a great game. Go for it, bend the English language to your whim.

If you don't like being singled out as a PC hater, stop making yourself out to be one. Plain and simple. Do I constantly shit all over the consoles? Do I? No. I have in the past talked about the pro's and cons of both. But, I own most of them for F's sake, seems kind of stupid to trash something I've paid thousands of dollars into.

PC Gaming, is where most of the devs nowadays got their start. It's where much of their notoriety came from. If you have a problem with people discussing past successful franchises that happen to have been on PC, I suggest an immediate and aggressive campaign to rewrite history. Until that time, I'm going to mention PC from time to time..., especially when discussing a franchise that originally started on PC. You may think Unreal simply appeared on consoles one day, but it actually had a history prior to that.

I never said I wasn't a PC elitist, I have, however, scaled back my rhetoric and attempts to explain why I feel the way I do. I have also, on numerous occasions stated that I absolutely prefer fighting games, and racing games on console, and that my main focus on PC is FPS/TPS. Sorry if you missed that, it's about my entertainment, after all. Not yours.

Never said I wasn't biased either, why you're intent on putting words in my mouth, instead of simply discussing things like an adult are beyond me. But hey, if that floats your boat, so be it. Kind of silly to make bullet points about it, when I didn't even claim such a thing.

Who says I want to be viewed differently? And who says I care about peoples views of me in the first place? I change because I _want_ to. Not because you want me to, or someone else wants me to. I changed my approach with gaming discussions, because, as I said, talking shop doesn't really have any effect on what people enjoy doing. Wasting hours of my time going into huge detail, is simply unnecessary, and it's not like I want to change the way people have fun. That's another reason why I stopped being so forceful about it. It's not my right to tell people how to have fun, nor would I want to do so, even if it were.

It doesn't take a genius to know I enjoy PC's and consoles, or a search function either. It's been obvious for years, I think, and I've never even remotely pretended otherwise. So, congratulations for finding what pretty much everyone is aware of.

Let me get this straight- you're admitting you're a PC elitist, you're admitting the majority of posts you've made at this site have at least mentioned the PC (most of the time when it was completely irrelevant to the topic at hand), and you're admitting there's nothing in this article that has anything to do with trashing the PC. And you admit I made a joke in the first comment.

......so what are we even arguing about?

Sure, I'll admit I enjoy the games on my PC better, than those same games on console, and I'll admit that most if not all stories on this site rarely, if ever trash PC's. What you say regarding them, in the comments section however, is another thing entirely, and is typically where you net most of your responses and arguments regarding the subject.

I will not however say that most of the time it's irrelevant to the topic at hand, given, many of the franchises on console nowadays started on PC. Discussing the differences, be they for the better or worse, is bound to happen, and it's certainly healthy to understand what is and isn't good for the industry.

As for the last part, no, I didn't know it was a joke. Want to know why? Because every time someone even says the word PC, you have a 'joke' to say. After so many 'jokes', it stops sounding like humor, and more like purposeful spite. And, honestly, that's how you come across. It's why I've lately, been apologizing, mainly to you, when a discussion about PC anything comes up. Because, I really don't want to get into another huge poo-storm with you about it. I get it, you don't like PC's, I really do. It doesn't change the fact that the original Unreal ON PC, was an awesome game, or that many, MANY franchises came from PC.

Why does that have to bother you so much? I don't get it. I'm ALL for a resurrection of the original Unreal IP. The most recent games seemed lacking, due to their MP-centric concept. Which, as I said before, was oddly like the article you wrote regarding SP suffering due to the attention MP gets.

It's not really an argument. It's really two personalities clashing. My impression, is that you will always have something to say, whenever someone says anything that could be remotely construed as positive regarding the PC platform. At the same time, I take the bait on those quite often, and end up in a back and forth having to try and explain or argue from the PC side. I really want to make this clear though, my original comment, had absolutely no ulterior motive other than to say that Unreal was a great IP. None at all. There was no need for the joke, and I think you knew where it'd take this conversation.

You're not the only one who says positive things about PC gaming, Mornelithe. I don't recall ever saying anything in response to such posts from other posters. And that's because those members don't have a history of doing the same thing.

It's just that, at some point, I'd see your name and instantly assume there'd be something about the PC in there. That assumption didn't just come out of the blue, you know. I do know the members around here, and I have a memory.

I will admit to making one too many comments against the PC. I suppose I have. It's a pet peeve of mine and I don't hide it so well. Just so long as you've admitted to defending the PC on a routine basis...and you've resolved to cut down on the rhetoric.

I guess if you stick to that, I can just ignore the OCCASIONAL PC plug. ;)

I'll be getting a laptop here soon with a decently powered GPU. I plan on playing more PC-centric games on it instead of consoles. I'll probably do titles like Skyrim, Crysis, and Dragon Age on it. Along with Blizzard;s Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. I really like their RTS titles. I'm all about getting the best experience with the hardware I have, so I might as well play those particular games on the system that offers the best image quality.

But as a self sustaining platform, PC just isn't where it's at anymore. I don;t even really think of it as a platform. Unlike consoles, there just isn't any real direction or leadership behind the content offerings. No first party efforts to direct the culture. No long term commitment to supporting your existing hardware. Devs and pubs just sort of develop whatever works at the time and call it good. I mean, is that really a "platform"? Doeesn't seem like the same thing if you ask me.

"PC gaming is dying, accept it and you'll be a happier person."

Console gamers and the gaming media have been saying that consistently for the past decade yet PC gaming continues to grow every year. Even more so once Steam launched. Console gaming may own the market nowadays but with more developers lately stating that they will use the PC as the lead platform, that's just another sign that PC gaming isn't going anywhere.

All platforms have their place in this world for whichever crowd wants to play them. That's the one good thing about competition. Though it brings out the ugly side in some people.

Well, me and my mates, tl VERY recently, used to play UT3 every tuesday night and that was up til, what, April or May this year? Up til that point you could ALWAYS get a pretty full server whenever we logged in.

So, though it's not COD numbers, or even Warhawk numbers, there's STILL a community on PS3 and I do believe a couple of the bigger sites still have groups and clans that play on set nights and if you come up against them, even with decent mates, it can be hard to get many kills!

I'm REALL hoping The Heist, when it comes to PS3, has the same mod cooking abilities that Epic and PSN allowed for UT3 because it's exactly what kept UT3 fresh(a mate makes amazing maps of places we all know like his house and garden etc)and the lack of it was EXACTLY why L4D on 360 felt SUVH a con as a full retail game. imagine Heist at a tenner WITH you allowed to cook over PC mods? cold be massive on PS3 given most previewers have liked it mechanics wise.

But, whatever, if you wanna dive back into UT3 one of the days I'm sure you'll get a decent game and if you round up a few mates you're certain of it even today-some of the people who've kept at it, though, are RIDICULOUSLY difficult to hit and we normally ended up playing one hit kill games as a result! UT3 on PS3 was TRULY the home of the jumpy, shooty, gimpy thing! Had it had a campaign rather than cutscenes linking(often puzzlingly hard because of the idiot AI)training it could have been a SWEET package but, as it was, the ability to bring modded maps over meant I had a LOT of fun with a game that the media hated a good deal.

What it DOES show, though, is that Epic would easily have got Gears1 running pretty damn well on PS3 had it ever happened even back then. UE3 was NEVER the enemy of Sony some made out and the fact UT3 and t's mods stand u so well is testament to that for me.

UT3 is essentially a multiplayer game, Ultima. I know there is a single player campaign but in reality, to play against the bots are really only for target practice. That and to learn the different game types before you play the "real thing".

What he;s found,though, is that the friendly AI often means YOU can be a train, kill everything you see, pick up and plant every node at the next point ewtc but when the AI lets you down you just can't stop the other team trapping a node back along the line on your own-it can get SOOO frustrating and just wasn't thought out very well as, imho, it's not great training as it just doesn't show you anything LIKE how the game is played.

I honestly wonder about how dim that matey AI was!! anyone know if it gets better when you pl;ay on harder diffs? i.e does YOUR friendly AI improve it'[s brainpower as the oppo shoots you better?

Used to be play Unreal '04 back in the school days with a group of friends, but could never get into it any further than that. I can't imagine I'd be interested in a new Unreal, but I'd love to see Epic start a new IP on the PS3 that appeals to me a bit more.

Microsoft should just buy them and force them to make Gears forever. That company needs a first party studio or two.

If you look in Wiki, you'll see they actually have a ton of first party devs... just none working on anything worthwhile ;P

Honestly I didn't even know Epic made Unreal cuz I didn't pay much attention to the name on a box if it didn't say Squaresoft. I did play them though, and found them lacking.

In that fanboy war I have to choose Quake. Unreal= empty game with multiplayer. Sound familiar to anybody?

Unreal Tournament = multiplayer. And so was Quake Arena?
I enjoyed them both btw.

I liked Quake 2, but for the most part I've always liked Unreal better. Both series were pretty much made just for multiplayer as there is no real story whatsoever to any of them, just hints of one.

Quake Arena sure, but I liked the SP ones. It wasn't quite the Doom Killer but it was a step forward for FPS

Has anyone even thought about the fact that he didn't specifically mention Unreal Tournament??????

He said an it had been an 'awfully long time' since they released an 'Unreal' game. Now the last Unreal game they released was Unreal II in 2003.
Unreal Tournament 3 was released in 2007, now i don't exactly classify 2007 as an awfully long time ago.

So i honestly believe that they are talking about a new Unreal game, not UT4.

Hell yeah. Fuck Gear of War, I've always been a UT fan. I think UT3 was very underrated too, that game was great.

BOUT F*CKING TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
come on, its been 4 years since UT3 released!
i love gears as much as the next guy, the best TPS ever created!
but come on, that does not mean you can ignore the game that made you who you are!
epic would be nothing if it was not for the PC community, and the unreal series!
