Epic Games appears poised to reveal the future of Unreal Tournament Thursday, May 8, at 2 p.m. ET in a Twitch stream, according to multiple Tweets from Epic employees today.
"You want to know about the future of #UnrealTournament?" Epic co-founder Mark Rein wrote asked on Twitter. He also included hashtags for #FirstBlood and #UnrealDev, just as Meegan did. Dana Cowley, Epic's marketing manager, also tweeted with the First Blood hashtag, and included a link to a YouTube video from user CoDxForCe. Posted in 2011, the two-second video speaks the phrase "first blood," which plays after the first kill in a map.
The Unreal Tournament series of multiplayer first-person shooters made its debut in 1999. Unreal Tournament 2003 and Unreal Tournament 2004 followed. The last game in the series, Unreal Tournament 3 (pictured above), was released in 2007.
