Epic has officially downed tools on its long-in-development Unreal Tournament revival, company boss Tim Sweeney has confirmed.
Amid the noise around Doom, Overwatch and the er, less noise surrounding Battleborn, it's easy to forget Epic is still plugging away on a new Unreal Tournament.
The next Unreal Tournament title - simply called Unreal Tournament - will be free on PC, Mac and Linux, Epic announced today in a Twitch Livestream.
Epic Games has no current plans for, and is not developing, a new Unreal Tournament game.
I've killed my little brother Matt hundreds of times. I've killed him on a gunboat. I've killed him on a train. I've killed him on a spaceship, but not, sadly, on a plane. It's been reciprocated in kind, too. He's sniped my head off on an asteroid, dropped a nuke into my castle, and splattered my giblets across a cathedral floor. Ah, memories.
Doors open in the video games industry for someone like Cliff Bleszinski. He's famous in these parts. He left Epic Games in October and got away from it all, put some trunks on, went on holiday and spent time with his wife. Now he's had his break, what does he plan to do?
Cliff Bleszinski came across very well in an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit at the weekend.
Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney is to be the newest member of the notable AIAS (Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences) Hall of Fame.
