Will we soon see another Unreal Tournament ?

The iconic franchise has been on hiatus since Unreal Tournament III in 2007. However, Epic Games appears to be teasing a sequel…

Vice president of product development Paul Meegan has given us the biggest clue via Twitter , where he says we'll find out more about the "future of Unreal Tournament " during an upcoming Twitch channel presentation. This will occur on May 8 at 2 p.m. EST, so tune in if you're interested. Epic vice president and co-founder Mark Rein echoed the tease and added:

"I love Unreal Tournament! So excited for the comeback!"

It'll be interesting to see how they handle a new UT, and the technical aspects should be pretty impressive, as the new project may utilize the studio's new Unreal Engine 4. In a world where multiplayer shooters reign supreme, this might be the perfect time to revisit one of the pioneers of FPS multiplayer fun.

One of the pioneers indeed, and easily the mp shooter I've spent far, far most time in.
I'm just sooo there when it arrives!

But this is what I mean: its just so much more of an event when they let it go a few years between each iterate.

UT was one of the few FPS multiplayer games I could really get into. I hope something good gets announced.

As much as I'm against MP, I'm keen for this. So many good memories of goofing off during class in high school playing UT2004.

Seeing as I still play UT3 regularly on my PS3 (put about 8 hours in last weekend) and have over 9 gigs of downloaded mods, I am praying they announce this for the PS4. This would be my killer app if I didn't already own the PS4. UT3 is THE best shooter available IMO (with Quake being second)even being 5-6 years old. Better than CoD, Battlefield, and Halo. I have spoken!

After Quake, UT was pretty much the only FPS I acknowledged. I used to stomp countless friends in the first one. Hopefully they treat it right.

I hope it gets better treatment from players than the last one. That was one great game a lot of people missed out on
