    Phoronix: UT3 Linux Still Undergoing Work, No ETA

    Unreal Tournament 3 was released back on the 17th of November in 2007. Nearly a year and a half later, we still have no UT3 Linux client -- nor do we know the reason(s) behind this massive delay...

    Sure its not funny with the way overdue releasedate, but see it on the bright side. Now we get a lot of finished mods as a bonus :P

    yes, because any intelligent person expects too results when delaying it like this, not giving ANY sort of information?

    if the morons in their management department cant figure that out, they frankly deserve to be comitted to the nearest protected home, for their own, and mainly others protection.

    Middleware drama you can't always predict.

    I hope epic has the good sense to put icculus on the development team so problems ( whatever the problem is ) can be anticipated and dealt with long before shipping

    I got a getter reason.
    The massive amount of middleware that went into the game.
    Any one of those things could have been coded so badly that they basically have to tear down the entire framework and reimplement it.

    Great post Chewi.
    I hope Epic next time around has the good sense (in their PR department) to tell us what's going on to a better degree than this. After this is done, someone high up had better be canned for how this was handled.

    I would like to have a look at what's really been done... and even I'm dying to see the code in order to really assess if that delay is not a pack of bullsh**s.
    There are only 2 reasons I can think of:
    - the port is delayed on purpose
    - the code is pure sh**
    In any case, I won't buy this sh$t. They deserve a lesson and the only way for us to give them a lesson is not buying their product.

    For a server/client based game you don't need to count sales. You can get stats from the server if the client reports the os. You could even check for wine/cedgea or whatever if you really want to.

    I'd be happy to buy every Linux game that uses the UT3 engine that isn't UT3 (and I think that's still a valuable reason for them to continue development), but I'm not interested in UT3 itself at this point.
