    I've seen forums that are very well handled though, so it does exist, it's just quite rare, I guess because it takes a considerable amount effort.
    Exactly, toxic forums are a reflection of the communication of the people operating them.

    This isn't just true of forums, of course. Any "system" turns into a reflection of the communication style used to operate that system. It's telling in a lot of ways in this project.

    I agree, just a bunch of Debbie Downers and Negative Nancys who think they know how this game is supposed to be made. Its NOT UT99 already!

    It's not being cancelled. Some are helping out with the launch of Fortnite and the others are just grinding away at the game. No more, no less.

    Projects come and go. I would not be surprised if epic decided to shut the game down quietly. Lawbreakers and Quake Champions are much better games right now and have grasped the attention of other arena fps fans.

    I do not want to discourage the development but I'd rather see the game canceled and have the community get fired up to make a better more successful UT like game.

    Not to be offensive or personal, but the community managment for ut4 is really bad.
    Does not show a lot of respect for the unreal community which is part of why the franchise was really successful. Quite a sad development lately ...

    Well they are focusing a lot on Fortnite and Paragon right now. I think this pushes UT back a bit further. Still I'd love to hear what they've planned for the coming months. No matter if it's a livestream or a simple blog post. Just some information would be nice.

I assumed it was either fortnight related or maybe they're finally pushing out an alpha and a bunch of new content.
    They definitely had a dedicated team, but that really seems unlikely to be the case now based on everything that has gone on over the past nearly two years now. There was a definite shift at the end of 2015. They haven't seemed to be full time on UT since then.

    fortnite and paragon are projects with higher priority and devs/designers already mentioned several times in the past that they are working on other projects - as you can read from the links above, these 2 games are constantly updated unlike UT

    I totally agree, but this thread is not for the community to debate theories as to why Epic is no longer responding, its to push Epic to respond with the real answer.
