Epic Games VP of Product Development, Paul Meegan announced yesterday on Twitch that Unreal Tournament 2014 development has begun from the ground up and the game will be a free release for PC and Mac; Linux will also get a version. Epic Games plans to make money by pushing a user-driven mod marketplace.
"So what’s the catch? It will take many months until the game is playable by gamers. This is real development from scratch. When the game is playable, it will be free. Not free to play, just free.
We’ll eventually create a marketplace where developers, modders, artists and gamers can give away, buy and sell mods and content. Earnings from the marketplace will be split between the mod/content developer, and Epic. That’s how we plan to pay for the game."
