Unreal Tournament 3 Gold, Arrives This December
We posted a while ago that Unreal Tournament 3 was delayed from its suspected release in November and that it might come out December or worse case scenario next year. We can now stop worrying because Mark Rein has confirmed that Unreal is gone gold and will be arriving soon.
The PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 has gone gold! We got news last night that Unreal Tournament 3 has been approved by SCEA and has been released to North American manufacturing.
Midway has started talking to retailers to figure out exact timing and they will have a formal announcement early next week when everyone is back from the Thanksgiving holiday. My guess is that Midway will start shipping the title to North American retailers on Monday December 10th and it could show up in stores as early as December 11th but more likely toward the middle of that week.
I think PS3 owners are going to really enjoy UT3 this holiday so make sure you get it on your shopping list!
For PAL territories, specifically UK and Europe, we have a few localization-related tasks to complete and then we should be starting the certification process pretty soon. My best guess is early next year (January or February) for the game to ship over there.“
While I do feel a little bad for the UK and Europe I can’t be more excited for this. Just in time for Christmas, Unreal Tournament 3 is going to be under a lot of Christmas tree’s this year.
