Epic Games' Mark Rein says it's "too early to know" whether Unreal Tournament 3 will hit PS3 this year.
Rein was speaking to Eurogamer via email in light of Australian distribution reports that the PC version is set for mid-November but won't be joined by its console sibling until 2008.
Midway yesterday confirmed that the PC version is down for release in mid-November, although it couldn't be completely specific about the release date.
The publisher recently advised investors that the highly anticipated first-person shooter might miss the pre-Christmas release window and slip to 2008, with Rein later adding that the company had felt obliged to alert investors to the possibility despite a reasonable probability of getting it done this year.
An Xbox 360 version is also planned, but will arrive after PC and PS3 due to an exclusivity arrangement with Sony.
