Despite a statement from Midway in October saying the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 had been delayed to 2008, Epic's Mark Rein has said the game has gone gold and will be available in the U.S. for the holidays. Said Rein, in a Happy Thanksgiving note, "The PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 has gone gold! We got news last night that Unreal Tournament 3 has been approved by SCEA and has been released to North American manufacturing." Rein says Midway is currently in talks with retailers to work out an exact ship date, and will put out more news in the next week. Rein speculates that the title will ship December 10th and could be in stores in the days following. "For PAL territories, specifically UK and Europe," he continues, "we have a few localization-related tasks to complete and then we should be starting the certification process pretty soon. My best guess is early next year (January or February) for the game to ship over there." The PC version of the title has been released and is currently available. As a timed console exclusive, the Xbox 360 version of the game is expected in early 2008.
