"ArsTechnica reports that Unreal Engine 4 is being re-released under a subscription basis which provides full access to the source code, and a flat 5 percent gross royalty for use. Comments from EPIC show that Unreal Engine 4 is being ported to Linux and SteamOS as well as a variety of other platforms, and that you can cancel the subscription at any time. For educational usage, as well as free (as in beer) games, no costs beyond the subscription fee are incurred."

Ed Note: Updated title to be less misleading.

    So does this mean we may see an updated Unreal Tournament game? So many great mods came out of the original and 2004 versions, it would be a shame not to take the next step with the completed engine.
