Crytek and Cloud Imperium Games Settling Lawsuit

In other legal doings, a new legal filing shows that Crytek and Cloud Imperium Games are planning to settle the lawsuit over CryENGINE licensing for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 (thanks Eurogamer). This began in late 2017 over whether Cloud Imperium Games was legally entitled to use the CryEngine for both Star Citizen and Squadron 42. Most recently a back and forth last month argued over whether the case should be dismissed. Terms are not being disclosed, but now word is both parties agree the matter should be settled. Here's a bit:
Pursuant to C.D. Cal. L.R. 40-2, Plaintiff CRYTEK GMBH and Defendants CLOUD IMPERIUM GAMES CORP. and ROBERTS SPACE INDUSTRIES CORP., by and through their counsel of record, hereby notify the Court that they have reached an agreement in principle of terms to settle this action in its entirety and are working to document the terms of their agreement. Following execution of the agreement, the parties will promptly file a joint stipulation of dismissal. The parties respectfully request that the Court allow the parties thirty (30) days to document and execute their agreement and to file the joint stipulation of dismissal.
