This piece of news may be quick to get your fingers tingling with excitement if you were a big fan of the Unreal Tournament series from Epic. It has been confirmed that the game developer is going back to their roots in developing a new PC-only title. We know this isn't a rumour as Epic's own President Mike Capps directly spoke with Joystiq in which the following statement was made :-

"Epic Games prez Mike Capps told us after the panel that the unannounced PC project is currently underway, and that the current plans are to keep the game exclusive to the PC platform."

Certainly, this is a big shift of focus back to the old days with recent years seeing a wave of cross-platform titles and / or console exclusives such as the Gears of War series. We have no other info to go off at this early stage, but are in anticipation of whether or not the game will be more or less a singular casual affair or a new blockbuster that aims to reel back in a lot of old-school multiplayer FPS fanatics who miss what Epic once did best.

Can we smell the faint woft of UT 2013? We'll be sure to keep you posted on this one!
