Epic boss Mark Rein’s told Eurogamer that the developer is currently working on a big content update for Unreal Tournament, and that Midway will remain the series publisher for now.
“Midway is still very much the publisher of Unreal Tournament 3,” said Rein.
“In fact, we’re working together on a major expansion to Unreal Tournament 3, that we expect will excite and grow our UT3 customer base which, incidentally, now numbers over a million units sold-through world-wide.”

Midway’s dropped a friendly nudge that the Xbox 360 version of UTIII is now available in Europe.
The game features split-screen play over the PS3 version, five new maps and two new characters.
No user mods, though. Press release after the link.

After the break. This is the multiplayer footage that XBox 360 owners will get with their copies of Unreal Tournament III.
Some great stuff in there, especially when design director Cliff Bleszinski got riled up about “huge gladiators locking onto each other, engaging in this life and death struggle”.
Are you man enough?

As you can see from this listing on Play.com, the Gears of War 2 treat to be included with the 360 version of UT3 is, in fact, video content.
It’s out in July according to this listing, although we’re not sure Midway’s ever announced a date for it.
There’s no indication as to whether or not the video’s new, but it looks like we’ll know soon enough.

See it after the link. As you can see, at the end of the video a man who clearly smokes to much pegs the 360 version of Epic’s shooter for a summer release date. According to this IGN piece, it’s going to have split-screen and five new maps over the PS3 and PC versions. The game’s being shown off at Midway’s Las Vegas event this week, so expect plenty of playtests in the not-too-distant future.

Steadfastly aiming to keep the dream alive, Epic VP Mark Rein’s posted on the company’s forum that the 360 version of UT3 is still on the way and may be seen playable soon.
“We don’t have a particular release date yet but we’re going to be playing it with some members of the press in two weeks at Midway’s next Gamers Day in Las Vegas,” he said. “Should be fun. The game is coming along really nicely.”
Rein had previously mentioned that the game was being held up because of Microsoft’s reticence to allow user-made levels up on Live, one of the USPs of the PS3 version.
The shooter’s been out on PS3 since last November in the US.
