Nothing has changed for UT 3

Still aiming for the November release

 

Recent post of the most charismatic VPs that we know, Epic Games's Mark Rein, has casted a doubt on the November release of the most anticipated game for PC and Playstation 3, Unreal Tournament 3. We wrote about the mentioned post here.

Mark Rein has posted a comment on the forum, “We do not know exactly when the game will be completed. All we've said is that we're hoping for a November release, but as you know we value getting it right over getting it right now, so there's no guarantee of that.”

Anyway, after a two day buzz over the mentioned post, we received an e-mail from Mark Rein, stating that nothing has changed and that Epic is working toward a November release. Rein also said that he was simply shooting down the idea that some web site knew an exact release date when Epic didn't know one and reminding people that the company values quality over release date. Mark Rein also commented on other various web sites that the specific release date (in November) is still unknown and that "there's always lots to do to get a game like this ready to ship".

Was this an unintentional marketing move made by Mark Rein, we definitely doubt it, since Mark Rein is doing a great job in promoting his own products, the Unreal Engine and Unreal Tournament 3. The public and reporters fell for it, and we know that Mark Rein is the man that can create a buzz and get two days of free publicity for his game.

We saw the multiplayer at Leipzig's Game Convention and we had a chance to see and play the Ageia PhysX UT3 "Tornado" level. As everybody else, we also can't wait for the game to hit the shop shelves. If any game had to get a "buzz" then Unreal Tournament 3 is the first on the list, and again Mark Rein is the perfect man to make the "buzz" and sell the game.
