      If they did that, they may as well release UT2004 for free too.

      There is no reason for UT2003 to even exist afaik.

      ...just passing by....

              who would pay for the massive bandwidth if it were to be released for free?

                    Sierra's little Tribes stunt didn't work like they were hoping it would: nobody, and I mean nobody, went out and bought Tribes:Vengeance because of it.

                    I see no reason at all to release UT for free. Those who want to play a 6 year old game still are; everyone else has moved on.

                      Tribes isn't UT - Tribes sucks.

                      UT doesn't - that's the major difference.

                          **I haven't read this thread though yet, so it may have already been mentioned***

                          I believe the only time they will release Unreal Tournament for free download is when they know they can benefit from it.

                          e.g. 6 months before a new UT game is release, Epic decide to release UT99 for free download which attracts thousands of new players. The people who have downloaded the game immediatly play it, some like it, some don't, some form clans, others simply make new friends because of it, but either way, those who did like it hear about a new Unreal game being released and therefore they buy it.

                          The point is, is that if Epic made UT99 a free download then they will almost certainly benefit from a bigger fanbase / more buyers - but they won't do that until they know they can benefit from it. At the moment, UT99 will still be generating money for them so they would hardly benefit from making it freely availible.
