Epic Games' Tim Sweeny has confirmed that the team is not currently working on a new entry in the Unreal Tournament franchise.
The studio co-founder revealed this somewhat disappointing news at GDC, as reported by CVG. "We’re not [planning on] shipping an Unreal Tournament game," Sweeny explained. "We have a lot of nostalgia for the game but we’re actually not developing anything in the Unreal game universe at all at the moment."
With regard to what we can expect from Epic, Sweeny went on to add, “We’ve announced Fortnite… That’s a game we’ll be talking about later. We don’t have anything to show you here at GDC. We’re developing that project and there are several other projects that aren’t announced yet that are being developed with Unreal Engine 4."
Are you disappointed that Epic isn't working on a new Unreal Tournament title, or are you glad the studio is focusing its efforts elsewhere?
