Star Citizen Engine Lawsuit May End

A new ruling from a California District Court has preliminary approval of a Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit filed almost a year ago by Crytek versus Cloud Imperium over engine licensing for Star Citizen, the crowdfunded space game(s) (thanks Massively Overpowered via theyarecomingforyou). CIG originally licensed Crytek's CryENGINE for the project, and the lawsuit centers on whether they were living up to their side of the bargain, questioning if the license covered more than one game, and whether CIG was living up to obligations to promote Crytek's technology. CIG says their switch to Amazon's Lumberyard engine made these complaints irrelevant, and filed the motion to dismiss. The judge has now granted the motion "with leave to amend," giving Crytek three weeks to file an amended motion that might be viewed more favorably by the court. Here's word:

In light of the foregoing, the Court GRANTS with leave to amend Defendant's MTD. Within 21 days from the date of this order, Plaintiff shall file a Third Amended Complain addressing the deficiencies discusses in this Order or notify Defendants and the Court that it does not intend to amend. Thereafter, Defendants shall file their response within 21 days.
