Epic Wins Case Versus Silicon Knights

Mark Rein tweets that Epic has prevailed in their legal battle with Silicon Knights in U.S. District Court. Silicon Knights accused Epic of failing to support their licensing of the Unreal Engine 3 for Too Human, and sued Epic. Rein says simply: "Case over. Jury finds for Epic on all counts." Rather than winning a settlement, Giant Bomb reports Silicon Knights is now on the hook for $4.45 million in damages in this case. Thanks VG247.

Not to Defend SK... but at the time, I don't think there was that much support for the engine... again, we're talking a company that went from 2.5 to 3.0... the early years of UE3. UE3 may have fantastic support now, but it probably wasn't always that way.

At the same time... SK should not expect Epic to code their game for them. Obviously, other studios figured the engine out and they were able to produce a game. Maybe SK's programmers weren't up to the task. I don't know.

The bottom line is... apparently SK felt they weren't getting enough support, which screwed up their schedule, and the courts disagreed.
