Unreal Tournament 3 PS3 Delayed or is it?

1 min read

The CEO of Midway, David Zucker, came out yesterday and stated that Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3 has been delayed and will now only be available in Q1 of 2008.

Now this morning Mark Rein, from Epic, has come out and stated that they may still make the November release date and Midway was just trying to warn shareholders.

So ‘if’ it is getting delayed why do you think this is? Not to worry David Zucker was kind enough to tell us.

Zucker was very specific about the company’s roadblocks on the PS3 platform, citing “technical issues with the Unreal Engine 3.0” with finishing work on the PS3 versions of Stranglehold and Area 51: Blacksite. Consequently, Area 51: Blacksite will be arriving three weeks after the Xbox 360 and PC versions drop at the end of October, while Stranglehold remains an unspecified fourth quarter release.

This is not the first time that we have heard about problems running the Unreal Engine on the PS3 and hopefully once they sort this out it will be the last.

Since Sony have the timed exclusive as well it means the Xbox 360 version also gets delayed, unless Microsoft pony up some cash.

    They should just rename UT3 for the X360 to UT2k8 and release it. No use waiting for the PS3 version to materialize since it keeps delaying all the other platform versions as well!

    And here I hoped to play UT3 before Xmas. Thanks Sony!

    I suspect Microsoft would rather spend that money advertising Halo, Mass Effect, Lost odyssey and PGR4 . . . 😉
