So that new Unreal Tournament is officially dead then.

Shame. I'd been waiting for it to get a bit further along before really diving in to it, but it'll never happen now.

I did try the new UT out a couple of years ago and it was good fun, felt more like UT99 than 2K4 which was a good thing. Guess I'll uninstall the Epic launcher as I have no interest in that Fortnite shite.

Yeah this too.

It's equally annoying as they've got more money than God at this point, so surely they could fund a couple of small teams making smaller projects like Unreal Tournament. strawberry float, get a team working on a 3D Jazz Jackrabbit game. :lol:

I imagine Epic's development process now is "If game != Fortnite THEN cancel all development"

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

MS games on sale on the humble store, Age of Empires 3 is 75% off which makes it... 13.41!? :lol:

Regular price is $53! How the hell are they trying to charge so much money for such an old game?!

It shows as £6.74 for me on their site.

That's about equivalent in pounds sterling from my rough sums. It's £7.50 when I check, are you on Humble Monthly?

Oh yeah I am, forgot about the 10% discount with that.

That's really disappointing, I played a little bit of it and I really liked the way it felt. UT'99 is still my favourite competitive shooter and I really hoped this would finally be the modern update it needed as most of the sequels since fell a bit flat.

As others have said, Epic are obviously far more wrapped up with Fortnite as it's such a money spinner, a shame that we lose out on a proper competitive shooter as a result. :(
