well there's two theories going around, either Epic is making a separate UTX / UT3X page, or this is their last nail in the coffin for unreal. only time will tell.
I had my hopes up because I really love Warfare and VCTF in ut3 and would love to see some big games going, but at this point idk what's going on.

BTW, Epic is still in silence, now its June and as my memory dont fail, did they tell us that about this spring could arise that ut3x version at steam? Nothing there....

i doubt it. they massively screwed up with ut4 and the community was pretty mad. i mean seriously, they removed hammer jumping in order to force players to use the grenade launcher alt fire to jump higher and then abandoned the community. I think epic ghosted us because they didn't know how to bounce back, and i think backlash also offended them. They don't want an audience of adults, or ut oldschoolers, they want an audience of kids that will steal their parent's credit cards. ut is a game for adults with an m rating, and we just want to pay once and play/mod.

i think the only way they would go through with making another unreal game is if they hired a team out of the modding communities and let them make the game as a passion project. and considering epic's stance on profit, i really don't see that happening.

Well, kids playing the games is beneficial for them than the adults playing the game.

“For a while now, we’ve been spending way more money than we earn, investing in the next evolution of Epic and growing Fortnite as a metaverse-inspired ecosystem for creators,” Sweeney wrote. “I had long been optimistic that we could power through this transition without layoffs, but in retrospect I see that this was unrealistic.”

Soooo... Tim saw now that they are not earning money as always although Fucknite did, isn't?
Unreal games are being replaced by that shitty game for rats, its clear now.... Bad decision = karma
Do you know the spanish word pesetero? money-grubber this word entitles perfectly who is Tim now.
Better not to talk about that IP anymore since they abandoned ut and unreal and fooled to fanbase about a never-republished/rebranded and so-called UT3X that could be released sometime in this year (This got silenced and supressed inside steam log).
