Hi and how are you all doing
You may hate what am about to say , good fellow Unreal people , but this old school Unreal Grrl has just thought about something
I think the officials idea to let the community make the next UT is not so good or it does not go so well like intended
If we count the difference in years since UT 1 came out in 1999 then the next UT in 2003 that's least known , then shortly thereafter the remastered UT 2004 that's well known came out just one year later and then lastly UT 3 in 2007 , we can notice a pattern of releases at reasonable periods of wait
We are in 2017 ( i cannot believe that are 10 years gone already since 2007 ) and UT 4 isn't out yet
If the officials had went in the same direction they went before , we would have been at Unreal Tournament 5 if not 6 by now
UT 4 could've been done in 2010/2011 , UT 5 could've been done by 2014/2015 and next year we would be waiting for UT 6 not UT 4
I do like of course that the engine is free for the most part and is exciting to see the community at work , expecting with breath held at whatever they would come up with but is ten years , a decade already of time that has just flied away like that and we still do not have the fourth iteration of the game installed ...so...i don't know if it was such a good idea in the first place :/
Someone that's an ex friend told me a clever thing once , that , an artist , a creator of something , proves to deliver better work and superior work when they are restricted , when they are limited by either time , funds or work space whereas too much liberty can result in mediocrity or no results at all
I never agreed with him back then but now that i thought about it , i realized that he was right
Think what you will , i won't mind it , i just wanted to share my own thoughts is all but i sure wished this time had been spent playing the game than waiting for it...
I have to disagree on this. UT is legendary game, primary multiplayer shooter. Beside porting to new game engine that provide better eye candy stuff, what new things UT as fast paced multiplayer shooter could offer that i snot already provided by other game titles ?
Would each new recycle of UT.x. version be able to bring really something new on table to attract more fans and satisfy desires of already existing fan base ? After great success of older iterations of same franchize it become more and more difficult to repeat that. For both, player fan base and for producers/investitors.
In my honest opinion, it is better to create something new. I can only guess, but seems to me that over years of development folks at Epic Games are running out of fresh ideas that will bring something new on market and be successful commercially and by players community.
While they didn't published ultra popular game for a long time, they are become more proficient in improving game engine itself.
I think that they ade a very good choice with decision to make game engine available for free. There is more and more new games made with UE4, either, in production or already published titles. Epic Games got their share of profit that allows them to improve UE4 all time, becoming even more proficient in doing it, while players got more quality games than it would be possible without UE4.
I think that is win-win situation, for Epic Games, various indie developers and most important constantly growing players community fan base. That does not mean that we would not get some new cool game in near future from Epic Games. It does not have to be new UT.X., it can be something new, equaly or even more fun to play.
Anyhow, I'm grateful for such decision, as a gamer and potential new developer.
Hey guys, does anybody know how to get my article featured on the articles main page?
You can ask TKAzA " Moddb.com " or INtense! " Moddb.com " about this.
Nope, you have to ask me lol. I authorise (almost) all the stuff on the site. Please don't bother INtense (business & payment related issues only) or TKAzA (bans, copyright, trademark issues) for no reason.
Oh, and copyright/trademark/bans/other issues can also be directed to me, as TKAzA is only a volunteer.
