UT3 dated for North America

Midway Games has announced that the PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament III will be shipped to retailers on December 10 in North America.

After the delay of the PlayStation 3 version, Epic Games boss Mark Rein promised Unreal Tournament 3 would still be released in 2007. And about a week ago, Rein announced Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3 had gone gold and it would probably be released on December 11.

Midway confirmed Rein’s words, so the game will indeed be out on December 11. This is only for North America though, with Epic stating last week that UT3 will be released in Europe some time in early 2008.

Stay tuned for more coverage on Unreal Tournament 3 as it becomes available.
