  • Release date for UT3

    http://www.ggl.com/index.php?control...rticle&id=4994

    Hip Hip HOORAY! I hope that will be the final date.

    We don't know when the game will be released but it won't be ready in time for September 3rd. In addition the idea that we would release the game in the US and UK several weeks apart is just plain silly.

      That's what I thought. Separating release dates for US/Canada and other world by 3-4 weeks will only help resellers and pirates, but not to Midway/Epic.

                Its a good thing Mark Rein stepped in and said something. This thing has spread all over UT forums.

                550 digs so far.

                Which brings me to something. I know Epic wants to keep tight lipped about things but with almost no information being put out, and what info we do have is rather sparse. A rumor like this spreads like wildfire.

                  thanks for clearing that up.

                  certainly one of the shortest lived rumors in history

                    Thx Mark. To me this is rather good news. Just means I'll build an even more powerful rig.

                      yeah i saw that release date on gameinformer.com last week. i knew that it couldnt have been right though.

                      theres alot of good pc games coming out around those months. i wonder how well this game is gonna do compared to crysis, halo 3 and call of duty 4?

                        My thoughts exactly.

                          The 4th of septemebr would make an awesome birthday pressy!!!
                          Anyhow, i 'd rather Epic take their time and make this one the best UT yet!
                          Then again the waiting hurts so much......

                            Copied from my post in the OXM thread: It's pretty funny how these things work. On GGL there's a news article about it that mentions two sources, IGN and Gamerush. If you follow the Gamerush link, you'll come on a page that mentions it's a copy of another page. If you go that other page, you'll find a mention of the source. Not surprisingly, that source is IGN again. If you check the IGN page, you'll find nothing about it except a tiny box with information which, if memory serves me, has frequently changed in the past. What it comes down to is a lot of fuss around one number on one newssite that doesn't mention sources or even whether the release date is speculative or not.

                              Was following the comments on digg.com and was wondering what the official word was. Great that people like mark are able to set the record straight so quickly. i'm still saving and waiting to see the 1st benchmarks for hardware on UT3
