UTIII 360 "coming along really nicely"

360 version to be playable at this month's Midway Gamers Day, says Epic man Mark Rein

Always outspoken Epic VP Mark Rein has piped up on the progress of Unreal Tournament III on Xbox 360, which he says will be making a playable appearance at the Midway Gamers Day later this month.

Speaking on the game's official forums, Rein said: "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. Should be fun. The game is coming along really nicely."

There you are then. The Gears company previously said that Microsoft's stance on user-generated maps was holding back the 360 version, which still doesn't have a specific release date.

The PS3 version was released in the US last Christmas. Read the review here.
