Have you spent more than a healthy amount of time destroying your friends (and bots) in Unreal Tournament over the years? Then Epic’s Mark Rein has some good news for you because he’s “excited for the comeback!”

This was quickly followed up by tweets from Epic Games vice president Mark Rein, who said:


What do you think Epic Games has in store for Unreal Tournament fans this week? Do you think external Unreal Engine 4 developers have approached the company to make an official new entry to the Unreal Tournament series, as alluded to by Paul Meegan?
