I wonder what portion of this is still CryEngine?
While Amazon originally licensed Lumberyard from Crytek, the maker of the CryEngine, the company has rewritten the code from scratch. Director of AWS game tech Eric Morales said in an interview with GamesBeat that it is unencumbered by any intellectual property rights. Aniszczyk [CTO of the Linux Foundation] also confirmed that the Open 3D Engine is clear of such encumbrances. It has built-in patent protection, Aniszczyk said.

Ugh, it looks like they wrecked what made D1 and D2 fun for me.
Now it looks like they are trying to make it a cross between Gears of War and Fortnite.
No thanks. RIP to UBI.

While patents cover innovation they're supposed to be truly unique. Not just 'Hey let's take an existing thing and stick a few more things on it and call it new.'
Yes, the USPTO is beyond broken. And that's not going to change anytime soon with corporatists like Biden and Harris running things.

The Polish government is getting involved?!? What the fuck is going on, on this fucking planet? Tens of thousands of people dying every day from Covid19, possibly millions of new infections every day worldwide, and any government is spending one iota of time on this fucking video game!?!
Clearly I am living in some sort of simulated Hell or Twilight Zone.

I wonder what constitutes "the team" for that profit sharing exactly? QA? Support staff - cleaners, receptionists, et al.?

Do your job, collect your salary, and then go home. Those are literally the only things you ever need to do at any place of employment.

"Freeloaders" isn't an insult unless you are an over-sensitive asshat. It's a simple statement of fact when referring to F2P games, where 90-95% of players don't pay a dime

We don't need another f2p lord of the rings mmo that's based on the books. Having it be more like the films would have at least differentiated it.

Sad to lose people lose their jobs but the head honchos should try to cater presumed dead or niche genres like RTS, TBS, and maybe even do single-player, story driven games and not another MOBA or Battle Royale. Maybe they can actually stay in business with some braver approach to gaming.

- If developers/publishers are saving 18% by putting the games on Epic's store, why not give the consumer a 9% discount and keep the other 9% for themselves.

I'm sick of being gouged by these fuckers where they sell the exact same product in other places for way less money.
