UT 360 dev to begin in 08

They're a bit busy right now.

Mark Rein says that Unreal Tournament 3 is definitely going to come out on Xbox 360 - they're just not working on it right this second, and won't be "until early next year".

Rein was speaking to the capital letters fans at RIOTT when he was asked if the game is ever coming out on 360. "Oh yeah, absolutely," he said.

Once again he explained that while the PS3 "is an open system" and that the chaps at Sony "embrace user-created content", "there isn't really a way to do that on the 360".

"So our job, when we finish the PS3 version, and we've taken a little break, is to sit down with Microsoft and to figure out how we can do Mods on their system."

Work will start "early next year", he added.

In the meantime, the PC version is due out on 23rd November.

It will be followed first by the PS3 version, although Rein admitted in a separate interview with Eurogamer last week that localisation issues could prevent it from making it to shop shelves in Europe this side of Christmas.
