I'm surprised they haven't made an open-world survival/rpg on Na Pali.  If you've ever read the books (Hard Crash and Prophet's Power) by Ryan Hughes, keep that setting in mind. I could totally imagine a game revolving around being the only human in a foreign world, helping the rebel Nali to fight back the Skaarj.   Cool

I have never read either of those books yet but you have a good point and I'm glad someone has the same thoughts on this as I do!Smiley

Here's how I picture you right now:

Perhaps a good programmer can do a remake of Unreal1 with Unreal Engine 4 ? Roll Eyes

1) It takes more than one guy, and it takes more than just programmers.

2) This kind of project usually ends with a C&D letter from Epic because you are remaking their own game which is their own property.

As for why there is no Unreal 3, the answer is manifold: First, Unreal 2 was a flop, so for a while a solo Unreal was not something to be expected. But Unreal 2 is a very old game and I highly doubt it has any impact on the current policies of Epic.

Second, Unreal is largely a victim of Unreal Tournament's success. When you say "Unreal", people think "UT". This means anyone would be slightly reluctant to release a game with such a troublesome brand recognition. I can't guarantee it, but I suspect this might play a role in Epic's decision to make solo games under other brands then Unreal (such as GoW).

Third, the market for solo FPS might not be currently favourable right now. There is a large segment of the audience which seems to prefer pseudo-realistic military shooters, a few SF ones but which are relatively grounded (I think of Mass Effect and so forth, even though these ones are already old news). Unreal is a dinosaur: it's a completely unrealistic (how appropriate) FPS with over the top weapons. Unreal is also largely devoid of story, scenario and character, something which was not a problem back in the days of Unreal but is really expected now. Unreal 2 had some but it sucked and crashed.

Fourth, solo FPS is on its way to extinction. Games are made to be multiplayer with a few hours-long solo which is usually a glorified tutorial. There are exceptions (FarCry, Borderlands, Fallout), but they're mostly series which have always been dedicated to solo first, multiplayer next, which is not the case of Unreal, once again because of the influence of Unreal Tournament.

Finally, and I think it's the main thing: people play Unreal because they want to flak each others in the face on Deck. The amount of people who are interested in a new Unreal game is maybe 1/100 of the amount of people interested in a new Unreal Tournament. So the future is Tournaments.

EDIT : Woah, sorry SoulUnreal, I typed accidentally removed like 3/4 of your post because I hit "modify" instead of "quote" when typing this long answer. I'm sorry, it was a mistake.

I love the single player and I do not like the multiplayer . Frenzied and no plot , story , atmosphere , suspense , etc ...
Unreal1 had all this ... The music was beautiful ... I think we can create a good Unreal3 with a fascinating story . See Deus Ex , FarCry , Crysis , Half Life , etc ... I hope ...
Unreal 2 was a flop because it was too different from Unreal1 .
See what will happen in the future  Cool
