    Default Countdown for UT3 ... is it true?

    I just found this german site and there is countdown fur the UT3 release ... is it the real release date, or just a joke?

    http://www.unrealbase.de/news.php

    On the right side ... 66 Days, 8 hours, 50 minutes and 10 seconds ...

    I was on the site before and noticed it too, I very much doubt it's true.

    It's not a joke. It is however speculation.

    That's a rough guess, nothing more. I suppose they estimate UT3 to be out in mid-november and the demo one month before release, so they configured their counters according to these assumptions. Notice that their demo-counter says "Noch (zirka) 38 Tage" which means "ca. 38 days left". That is quite different from "exactly 38 days left", don't you think?

    It's very confusing to say "ca. 38 days left", but then even count the seconds xD

    But, if this countdown does not base on an official statement, it won't believe it.

    It's probably correct, not new info really.... It's either that or they're keeping track of how long it takes to defrag a hard drive with Vista

    It would be better if you see this as a countdown for the announced MONTH, not for the real DEMO or GAME release.

    30 days ahead of the game is the demo release? if thats true then only a little more than a month left to wait...

    It says its 37 days before the demo and 65 before the game...I guess even if its not the exact date it should be really close to that

    Nobody ever said the demo was exactly 30 days before. They need time to gather feedback, so I would imagine it would be sooner than that. As in before the end of September or by the latest, very early October..

    Epic types have said a few weeks and about a month. Not much to go on.

    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.

    If they won't release it in november they have to postponed it for a long while - everyone will have spent their money on et:qw, orange box/tf2, crysis, blacksite area 51, halo3, hellgate london asf. by end of november, so it's either november or something like feb/march 2008, which is after christmas and will, even without competition, result in less units sold, in other words: it wont happen.

    I expect a Demo to be here by early November if not late October.
    My guess for UT3 will be either 9th November or 23rd, but 23rd means they release it after Crysis which would be a bad thing i doubt they will release it on the same day as Crysis.

    Why? They seem to be very different games. Crysis doesn't really appeal to me at all.

    That's what the demo is for, amongst other things. To try before you buy.

    Most people that have a rig that can handle both can afford both.

    Well I really doubt that the game will be released later then late november, the ut3 page, the trailer and everything already indicate a November 07 release.

    Also it is already September now, if they really would have a big problem releasing it in November, they would already know it.

    I bet we will see a demo in around a month from now.

    Although you never know, it is Epic they never release an unfinished game.

    Cool, maybe they'll use the extra time to add in first person view to all the vehicles.

    If people really like UT, he anyway buy it. And TF2 is a good game, dunno about others.

    I think the problems could be map designs, because the game appears be finished in physics and playable aspects.

    I hope that it will be ready in November I only hope dont hear anymore "TWO WEEKS" Yeah Rein? xD

    made me think November was official. I guess there really never will be an official date. Even so, I can still wait, been waiting for over 2 years anyhow.

    I can't help but think something suspicious is going on (MS money under the table) It seems like games that could be a system seller for the PS3 are being pushed off. Now all of a sudden no UT3 for November? I was psyched to get this title for the PS3; I own the 360 also but wasn't and will not plan to buy that version. I won't buy the game at all for any platform if this is botched for the PS3 for November.

    What happened to ethics? Someone should start investigating.

    This game is the last hope for physics cards and a direct showcase of your newest engine.
    But please don't forget the important bit: Being responsible to the re-ascend of the non-worldwar-multiplayer-shooter and maybe pc gaming in general.
    So, even if this engine is already wetting viewer's pants (I've seen bioshock in all it's glory) and all things are working.... pretty please: don't forget to polish it! e.g. Don't think "some mod-developer will put in hitsounds here anyways". Think "we do a 'once-and-for-all' shooter", it's really not that difficult, just do exactly what top-league-players tell you about the deathmatch mode.

    Guys, calm down. They're just trying to avoid another "two weeks" scenario. If it was completely untrue they would have closed this thread days ago.
