    Fortnite Tournament - use the name to market UT4 when it's ready

    While reading a Reddit thread, a guy joked that at some point the developers would make "Fortnite Tournament". However, if you think about it, given Fortnite's success and popularity, maybe it would make sense to change UT4's name to "Fortnite Tournament" or "Fortnite Unreal Tournament" simply to glom on to the success of Fortnite as a way of marketing a finished and polished UT4, when it's ready*** for marketing. Thoughts?

    ***Of course, this assumes that the Developers work on it again and that one day it will be finished, polished, and ready for marketing and publicity. Who knows if that day will ever come.

            How about: Unreal Fortnite Tournament

            Yeah, I'm not a fan of adding Fortnite to the name anymore than you guys, but think of how many people it would bring in to try the game. As I said, I'd wait until it's fully finished and polished up to change the name and start marketing it.

              This. You can't get real success just by mixing the names of two franchises. And UT is already a popular franchise on it's own.

              But they could make an in-game event and name it "Fortnite Tournament" where you can unlock a Fortnite player skin or weapon skin or something like that.

                It is NOT a popular game in 2018. UT was popular in, say, 2005 when people were playing a mix of UT99 and UT 2004, but in modern times it hasn't been popular for years and is basically dead and dormant. The marketing of a UT4 would more or less be starting from scratch since most current gamers have never played (and many have never even heard of) Unreal Tournament.

                    What do you think UT4 has to lose, exactly?

                      Oh yes UT is still a popular franchise, even if it hadn't a new release for more than a decade. It's like Half-Life, which also had it's last release in 2007. These games are classics. When Epic Games decides to come up with a new UT and does marketing for it people will recognize it. There is absolutely no need to fool people by changing the name.

                        Unreal idea for a new name, but no. Fortnite stays as it is as Fortnite. Please don't make the idea turn into Fortnite Tournament.
