Epic's VP Mark Rein has put to rest any notion that Unreal Tournament III is one of Midway's underperforming licensed titles soon to be dropped by the publisher. Rein tells Gamespot that Epic's deal with Midway isn't a licensing deal, but a publishing agreement, adding that the company is currently working on a "major expansion" that will "excite and grow" the customer base. He wouldn't give any further details on the expansion and whether it was a standalone product or DLC.

Although UT3 has taken a backseat to Epic's flagship franchise, Gears of War, Rein states the multi-platform FPS has sold a million units worldwide.
