What if Unreal, didn't turn into UT? Would this still exist?
Yes, it would still exist, but more in the form of the original Unreal's Botmatch.
Botmatch online had a lot of problems, but they were gradually sorted, for the most part. I even played on a botmatch server years ago. There were only about 3 to choose from. I chose the one with the best ping, but even then I was lagging badly. Of course I think I was still on 56k back then. But I did see the possibilities.
Who knows what players and mappers and modders would have come up with by now, if the original botmatch had been the template for online play?
Many of the original botmatch maps were ported to UT 99, and even UT 2004, but most were not the same or as much fun as the original maps.
