Fantastisch! Nu het team van CounterStrike tot de ontdekking is gekomen dat een MOD ook in de winkels gezet kan worden, is het Assasination-team ook overstag gegaan. Voor mensen die dachten dat MODs dus altijd gratis zijn, is hier een kleine tegenvaller.

Dit gaat dus betekenen dat het spel compleet stand-alone gaat worden, maar hier direct wel de nieuwe features van de bijgewerkte Unreal2-engine geimplementeerd zal krijgen.We've got some good news and some bad news for the gaming community today. The bad news is that Assassination is not going to be an Unreal Tournament modification anymore, but the good news is that were making Assassination into a fully retail game so that all can enjoy. We're sorry for the UT community that was anxious about getting the Assassination MOD, but we felt that it would be better if everyone could have the ability to try our game. Currently we are working on a new site design to put up on our new site host, but until then we'll probably just upload this site design over there until the new one is completed. We'll have the link up shortly. We are also working on an FAQ that will fully describe what Assassination will be like as well as the many new features we plan to implement. After we complete the demo, we will send it to our publisher and then we'll be able to really start moving along. We will be able to use the Unreal Technology Update that will allow us to have maps with full terrain capabilities and all the other cool features of the engine upgrade. Until then, keep checking back until we get the link posted up to our site at a new host.Toch vraag ik me af hoe de gamers straks gaan reageren op al die MODs die ineens commercieel gaan. Het enige voordeel dat een MOD nu namelijk heeft valt dan namelijk ook weg...namelijk de prijs.
