We're still gonna have Linux UT2kX for the forseeable future, regardless
of this, right?

I hate the use of the "Exclusive" term...  Get's me all worked up...  :(

from PlanetUnreal:

"What comes as a semi-surprise, Microsoft has announced that they are
Epics new publisher (thanks Blues News). This wont affect UT2004, but
expect any and all future Epic titles to be published by Microsoft. Heres
a cropped version of the press release:

    Epic Games and Scion Studios to Create Exclusive Xbox and Windows
Games, To Be Published By Microsoft Game Studios

    JUAN-LES-PINS, France, 16th September 2003 Tonight at X03, Microsoft
announced a partnership with Epic Games, developers of the legendary
Unreal series of games and the Unreal Engine. Epic Games and its
recently-formed Scion Studios will develop several new games exclusively
for Xbox and Windows. The to-be-announced products will be published by
Microsoft Game Studios. "

I'll just sit here and pray...  The rest of you linux UT playin folks
should too, IMO...
