Unreal Engine 3 Licensees Get Supoenas
Posted in Other Stuff by Squirminator2k at 24/01/08 4:54pm CET

Kotaku are reporting that a number of licensees of the Unreal 3 engine have been "issued supoenas to obtain confidential engine contracts". Kotaku lists a few of the companies who have been supoena'd, but it's not a complete list so there's no way of knowing if Team 17 or Sierra/Vivendi have been dragged into this.

The issue, of course, stems from the ongoing battle between Silicon Knights and Epic Games concerning the engine - Silicon Knights feel that certain features promised of the Unreal 3 engine were not implemented when SK were told they would be, and decided to scrap use of the engine on their future titles. The two companies then decided it would be super-fun to sue each other.
