Silicon Knights’ lawsuit against Epic games continues


Let’s catch up: Silicon Knights’ project Too Human used Epic’s Unreal 3 Engine and that caused quite a few problems and therefore extra costs, according to Silicon Knights. Silicon Knights claims the engine was unfinished when it was released and the promised support never came. They want compensation. Epic, of course, went against this and wanted to torpedo the lawsuit, but it didn’t work out. That was announced today by the lawyer of Silicon Knights.

But that’s not all: Epic has now announced a “counter” lawsuit alleging Silicon Knights would use their technology without permission. While we are still a long way from a verdict, developers and publishers are closely following this lawsuit as this is the first time this has happened and could have major implications for middleware producers and users.
