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."

Nice, an all-time low for the industry.

I worked on an Unreal 2 project back when that version of the engine was still incomplete and under development. Since we were capable, rational adults we took responsibility for our own game and deadlines, meaning we just went ahead and wrote whatever code we needed to. Just like everyone else who somehow (mock dramatic accent) managed to ship an Unreal game in that period... you know, little things like Splinter Cell and the Army game.

Attention, Silicon Knights: Look, I don't owe anything at all to Epic but seriously guys, are you new at this game development stuff? Do you really think all it takes is clicking together some middleware that someone else wrote for you? You've got the source. Hire someone who knows how to use it, stop sucking your thumbs, grow up and write the damned code already. This bullshit is bad for the industry.
