"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.


  • 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.

Epic Games is pushing pretty hard on it's tools in a very unique way. Earlier this year they released the Unreal Engine toolkit for a reduced price, but now they are now going to develop the next Unreal Tournament game in the open. It's an interesting model and I hope the results are a great Unreal Tournament game, we have needed a new one for quite a long time.

I am curious how many from the UT community will join in the games development?

Sounds like a cool experiment! It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. Also: free UT! Seriously awesome.

I'm glad this isn't free-to-play, it's actually free. And the model they're using for development is a major shift from what we've seen in AAA games, honestly I'm more interested in how that turns out than how fun the game is.
