Unreal Tournament for iPhone

I'm hesitant to put this in the upcoming games section because it's drawn from an item in pocketgamer's rumor mine column. Let me quote them, so you can judge for yourselves:

Quote:
Enter Unreal Tournament. Not a port of an older instalment of the PC multiplayer series, this is an all-new game optimised for touchscreen play. Reservations about the controls are understandable, but Epic is sure to nail the level design, pack the screen with extreme detail, and load up on features.

3G network play is the only feature that's off the table - it's been a sticky subject for Archetype and Eliminate only supports four players.
Sounds pretty definitive, though, as usual with Rumor Mine, there are no links or attributions.

As far as I'm concerned, the iPhone has proved itself to be a nifty platform for FPS games -- better in some ways than other handheld devices. Obviously Unreal Tournament would be a nice addition to the App Store.

I remember seeing the video demonstration of it running on an iPhone and thought it looked great, but I've yet to really trust PGs rumour mine much at all. Colour me hopeful but not totally expectant.

It kind of seems like their "rumor" mine articles just amount to them posting things developers have told people in confidence, then they play dumb and pretend they're just rumors. ...And that's all I have to say about that!
