    Its catch 22. If there was a massive pool of players then getting similarly skilled players in any match would be easy. Without it you could be waiting a long time for a game. UT's hubs are great for organizing matches though.


      There were already easily enough players (especially inexperienced ones) and a good enough ranking system to start matching players up by skill. You can't blame the game mechanics when someone who can't even figure out which way is up gets trounced by a long-time franchise veteran. It's a natural consequence of the game actually having some shred of depth. What you blame is a matchmaking system that has access to adequate knowledge about the skill difference and doesn't care, dumping those two in the same game anyway.

      Just like you don't blame weapon design for bad netcode, or design movement around it, etc. Serious commitment would start with actually laying some foundation you can build upon.

          The Future of Unreal Tournament Begins Today.

          Work on the future of Unreal Tournament begins today, and we’re happy to announce that we’re going to do this together, with you. We know that fans of the game are as passionate about Unreal Tournament as we are. We know that you have great ideas and strong opinions about where the game should go and what it should be. So let’s do something radical and make this game together, in the open, and for all of us.

          Here’s the plan:

          • We’ve created a small team of UT veterans that are beginning work on the project starting today.
          • From the very first line of code, the very first art created and design decision made, development will happen in the open, as a collaboration between Epic, UT fans and UE4 developers. We’ll be using forums for discussion, and Twitch streams for regular updates.
          • If you are a fan and you want to participate, create a free account and join the forum discussion.
          • All code and content will be available live to UE4 developers on GitHub.
          • The game will be true to its roots as a competitive FPS.
          • Development will be focused on Windows, Mac and Linux.

          So what’s the catch?

          • It will take many months until the game is playable by gamers. This is real development from scratch.
          • When the game is playable, it will be free. Not free to play, just free.
          • We’ll eventually create a marketplace where developers, modders, artists and gamers can give away, buy and sell mods and content. Earnings from the marketplace will be split between the mod/content developer, and Epic. That’s how we plan to pay for the game.

          A lot of this is brand new for Epic, and we don’t yet have everything figured out. Things will probably definitely go wrong from time to time, and when they do, we’ll have to work through them together. There will be a lot of tough decisions to make, and not every feature will make it into the game. But if you’re a fan of Unreal Tournament, a UE4 developer, or a future modder – or if you just want to learn how we make games – we hope you’ll join us. It’s going to be fun.

          Want to get involved?

              Well since 17th October he blocked me on his Twitter account profile. Also Tom Ruegger's son Nathan did the same thing.

                Oh god! Just found this forums 5 years too late it seems. But new Unreal tournament is awesome news (its news to me at least, albeit late). I loved UT 2003 and 2004 as a teen.

                Anyway, I had a "mod"/developer idea that for me, would make this game (on top of what you guys have already been doing) the best game in the universe. I'm not even kidding.

                My biggest FPS fantasy always has been to pair up the fast movement, guns skills, and insanity of UT with the deeper gameplay of the multiplayer of the original Deus EX game. Adding nano augments such as stealth and speed and regeneration, ballistic protections etc as an optional choice for gameplay/map would be insanely fun and add a level of tactics not found in current FPS. Perhaps even adding mine laying as well...hacking turrets, wtr. Point is you take the amazingness of Unreal Tournament movement and FPS player skill and marry it to the strategic and tactical gameplay of the original Deus Ex.

                Just a thought.

                  Unfortunately it's officially dead and ut4 is cancelled, but public assets were not leaked like in case of Paragon. According to some Epic Games employees Unreal Tournament 4 will never leave its pre-alpha demo development stage. Honestly founder of Epic Games is just ignoring me(not talking with me anymore), but in another Twitter account he just blocked me.

                        Bad news guys.
                        I don't get why how unfortunate that this game not popular just like Fortnite. This game might be able compete with Star Wars Battlefront series,Team Fortress 2,Overwatch series,Quake Championship,Doom(2016) this game would also make Tencent and Epic Games very rich. Unreal Tournament 4 might be free to play,but within lots of microtransactions(lots of digital money if Epic Games might),lootboxes,new skins,hats...etc. I don't get it why can't they revive Unreal Tournament series?
                        Pure Fortnite updates development hell. Why since 2017 Tim Sweeney(he wants Fortnite updates and be rich thanks to this game with all costs) and Donald Mustard decided to make Fortnite Battle Royale(it was very weird step to close original normal FBR forum moved to Reddit instead) instead of reviving Unreal Tournament 4 and Jazz Jackrabbit 3(cancelled and never officially released due to lack of finding the publisher in the late 90's).
               Did I show you this article before? Deja vu?
                        I heard those working on Fortnite if they'll try to rebel they are vanishing(without any traces) and nobody sees again such a people.
                        Nerves are not good for work. I watched colleagues who were calm at first, but became more and more nervous about spending so many hours in the office. One day they got up and left, and we never saw them again. Nobody talked about them. If someone asked: 'Hey, does this person still work here?', I just looked at him strangely - informed the person asked by Polygon.


                          Would you like to sign this my petition,please? It probably won't help solving the problem,but at least I want to try. The most petitions were closed.


                            Unreal Engine 5 is no longer Mega64's joke it's real.

                              I wonder if the UT will be mated to the Unreal engine 5. What will happen next with UT ?
                              Мои старые карты WIP!


                                It seems only Fortnite Battle Royale will have Metaverse support. I guess it’s inspired by Matrix series. It seems Jazz Jackrabbit series and Unreal Tournament series have no future. I heard UT4 will never leave pre-alpha development stage such as Sonic X-Treme and old Jazz Jackrabbit 3 tech demo. Despite UE5 tech demo I Heard Fortnite will be first UE5 game. Epic Games and Tencent should invest in JJ3 and UT4 instead of FBR. I guess Epic Games started working on UT4 in Anno Domini 2014. I guess nowadays They are too lazy during the COVID-19 pandemic. For Epic Games former employee Cliff Bleszinski on Twitter it’s plandemic to him. It seems Deus Ex 1 predicted COVID-19 speaking of conspiracy theories.
