Silicon Knights Ordered To Destroy Unsold Unreal Engine Games
The court battle between Epic Games and Silicon Knights isn't over quite yet. A new filing yesterday has ordered Silicon Knights to destroy all game code using Unreal Engine, which includes Too Human and X-Men Destiny, and unreleased projects The Box/Ritualyst, The Sandman, and Siren the Maelstrom.
The developer also must cease producing or distributing any games using Unreal Engine and must recall and destroy any unsold games at its own expense. Additionally, Epic Games' original $4.45 million award has been doubled to $9 million. Silicon Knights has until December 21 and again on February 21, 2013 to notify the court and Epic Games concerning its compliance of the injections.
"Epic Games appreciates the court's careful consideration of the motions and is gratified by the order," the company said in a statement. Silicon Knights declined to offer comment on the order.
