Unreal Tournament 2007 Release Date

Posted by On December - 31 - 2006

As I was browsing the websites of Wal-Mart and Target I noticed Unreal Tournament 2007 with a release date. I have read that it will be released in the first quarter of 2007, but had not seen an exact date. Wal-Mart has a release date set for January 5th, 2007 and also provides a preview video for all you curious people out there.

Walmart

Target also has a release date set, but theirs is set for January 8th, 2006.

Target

The game is currently only being sold for PC, so all of you PlayStation 3 fan boys out there will have to continue to wait. With the incredible success of Unreal Tournament 2004, I would suggest preordering your copy now. I have personally played Unreal Tournament 2004 and would recommend buying Unreal Tournament 2007 to anyone that drools over a great first person shooter. Pre-ordering it doesn’t spit out any errors, so it seems legit.

Other thoughts

Not every antivirus software is as good as it claims to be. When using wireless internet with services like startlogic or even bluehost, make sure that you are talking across an antivirus firewall software. Usually zone alarm is used and is the best option too.

    Erm, are you being a bit silly here – that date is 01/05/07. Now, being an American site, that date translates to 1st May 2007 – AND NOT 5th Jan 2007!!! If you were to go to a UK website you’ll find that the date is actually 1st May.

    Check your facts dude!!!

  2. Stegura says:

    1/05/07 means January 5th in America.

  3. Dzigner210 says:

    Actually he’s reading it correctly thats how we read our dates Jan 5th 07 whether its true is another story

  4. kiwiboy says:

    Erm… I suggest you check your own facts, Plonker:

    en.wikiped..._the_month

    Anthony had the date right. If you click on the “See esitmated arrival date” link DIRECTLY under the date, you’ll see it says in plain text “Wed, Jan 10 – Fri, Jan 12″ estimated arrival date using Standard Shipping.

    Try again.

    Can I ask where you guys are coming from? IE Digg slashdot etc?

    All the traffic is coming from digg.

    Can’t wait to play on PS3. I hope they take their time with it though, so they can showcase the superior power of the console.

    I like consoles, but I can’t imagine this on a console. Aiming would be more difficult as well as some wall dodging. AWSD > * for a FPS game.

    You mean as compared to a PC?…right dude

    should do more research first. Walmart as usual is posting false release dates. its not until June 6th or so. check on gamestop.com and other real game sites. sad. i was waiting for it.

    All websites including Wikipedia say it’s going to be released in Q1 of 2007. There was no other information on it, so I figured this might be accurate. Maybe there will be a demo soon.

    Amazon says Release Date: March 31, 2007
    heres the link.
    amazon.com...videogames

  13. shred_dog says:

    If you check Amazon.com – the american site, it says UT2K7 will be available March 31, 2007. Because Epic doesnt seem to have anything updated on their site about it, and there’s nothing on the official UT site, I would say this is still speculation. Methinks it might end up the “Chinese Democracy” of games.

  14. _Lynx says:

    Now Epic said that first, the UT2007 demo will be released at least month before the actual game release. Do we have demo? No. Remember the buzz around Gears of War? I don’t think Epic won’t advertise the game and’ll at least add some content to http://ut2007.com/ No ads, Site’s still only a splash page, so January 5th? Absolutely not likely.

    And as it is said in this thread: utforums.e...p?t=558281

    “There has been no released date announced for UT2007 by Epic. When there is a release date, you will see it here first. It is planned to be released for the PC and PS3 Console. There are no plans for it to be released for any other console at this time.”

  15. Beaker75 says:

    gamestop.com has the release date as:
    June, 1 2007.

    I don’t think that the Jan, 5 2007 date is correct (I believe this is actually and old date), because I havn’t seen anything about it going gold. Until UT2007 is reported as having gone gold I would treat any date as guess by buy the retailer.

  16. GamexViral says:

    Actually if you go to Walmart.com, it says you can order it now… and it will arrive at your house on Jan 8.

    I posted a blog about it. Thanks Cyber-knowlege for this info.

    The new game “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas” uses the UT2007 engine. It was released 12 Dec.

    This suggests that engine is done, and they are merely finishing maps and testing before releasing UT2007.

    It could also mean that UBI got a deal on the engine by volunteering their users to beta-test the software, since it has more than a few bugs, some of them crashes.

    Modern ‘fastest’ hardware is required for decent framerates on Vegas unless you like playing at 640×480 using ‘minimum’ hardware.

  18. _Lynx says:

    I can tell you that the only thing you’ll get on Jan 8 is apologize from Walmart that they can’t deliver you one, because their point-blank guess failed. None of the dates can be treated as true until Epic will roll out the demo. Trusting to all those e-shops is the last thing I’d ever do. I guess Epics are quite surprised to know that they’re sent game the to gold already.

    Just my $0.02, and this is not meant to start a flame war, but I think that us PC gamers should not have to suffer just because the PS3 development is going slow. I say release the PC version now, if it is ready, and let the PS3 gamers drool over our shoulders while they wait. It still amazes me that the new Unreal Engine has now won an award 3 years in a row, as stated on Epic’s website. Come on Epic, I want to try out the new, sorry old, engine.

  20. ribfeast says:

    Umm.. I think there would be information about this on Epic Games or any of the publishers of UT2k7 before Walmart would release the date.

    The same thing has happened in the past where Amazon listed the World of Warcraft Beta being available much earlier than it ended up being released by Blizzard. Why believe Walmart?

    Are you dreaming? The PC is already past the power of the PS3. Welcome to reality. The 8800GTX alone is far more powerful than the entire PS3. Silly console fanboy…

  22. Leviathan says:

    If you go to the Walmart link and hit “See Estimated Arrival Date” you will see they list it as being JUNE. Therefore they are calling 06/01/2007 June 1st 2007…

    Oh shut your hole. elitest ass. first off, i garentee when he said supirior, he was refering to it in contrast to xbox and wii. if someone wants to get it for ps3, then thats fine, and jesus titlicking christ, stop comparing consoles to pc’s. console = games only, no need to upgrade for every new game that comes out (in otherwords for some of you hardheads out there – easier for…. gamers.). pc = multitasking machine built as much for workstations (non-gaming buisness, etc. yeah, i know its a fuckin system shock to some people that pc’s are used for stuff other than gaming.) as for gaming. both are good for games, and no one gives a fuck if you spent daddy’s money on the latest $600 ubertech every 6 months to get teh omgzlolz FPS in your favorite game.
