Unreal Engine 3 Customers Subpoenaed

In other legal wranglings, Shacknews also reports that "multiple Unreal Engine 3 licensees have been served with subpoenas" related to Silicon Knight's lawsuit over Epic's support for the game engine (story). This is apparently an effort at digging into details of the contacts involved, which is normally confidential information, and it's possible that this could lead to this info becoming public. They have a quote from Epic's Mark Rein about this: "I'm leaving the litigation to the lawyers but, if this is the case, I'd like to apologize to any of our licensees who Silicon Knights have inconvenienced. We know that, like us, they just want to make great games."

That's why this is a stupid thing to do to themselves and to the industry as a whole. With any luck they'll fall into a sinkhole before they manage to fuck the rest of us.

I agree, lawsuits over breaches of contract are totally at odds with the "it's all chill bra" attitude of the gaming industry. If this is allowed to continue, we will careen down a slippery slope to the point where developers can only wear their Slayer T-shirts on Casual Fridays!
