This is going to be a wash. Neither company winning? Sounds like EPIC didn't deliever the product on time and that Silicon Knights took some Unreal code. They had better just settle out of court.

Good point. I hadn't thought of that, sadly it could be true and they will both step back. Why are the devs doing this to each other?

I'm somewhat suprised it even came as far as lawsuits, I expected them to deal with this quietly amongst themselves.

But whatever the case, this is now almost appearing to work out as a publicity stunt ;\

It's probably not illegal to be late delivering the tech, particularly if Epic stated, in contract, that they were not responsible for timely updates of the engine. At most, that amounts to a civil violation of a contract. However, not paying for services rendered is definitely illegal.

wow next gen is awesome, game devs show realistic human petty behavior

Epic does seem to make a point if silicon knights promised to use the unreal engine on all their future titles.
But because they didn't get the support from epic they developed their own engine apparently using unreal engine technology.

seems to me that epic is going to win this one.
