No Unreal Tournament "for several years"

Epic has other priorities, says Sweeney.

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has said that we're unlikely to see another Unreal Tournament game "for several years".

"Unreal Tournament is certainly a major long-term priority but we're planning not to release a major retail game in the series for several years," Sweeney told G4TV in an interview my browser doesn't like.

"So we have that effort somewhat on hold while we work on a few other initiatives."

That's despite the critical success of the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Unreal Tournament 3, and of course the impressive post-release support offered by the Titan Pack, which reinvigorated sales many months after release.

Sweeney suggested that the community was still getting loads out of the game anyway, remarking, "We almost solve the Unreal Tournament 4 and 5 problem ourselves by just making this toolset available because the community has done more than we could have ever hoped to do internally."
