Jury finds for Epic “on all counts”, Silicon Knights hit with $4.45 million damages
A US jury has sided with Epic Games on all counts in the suit brought against it by Too Human developer Silicon Knights.
According to a tweet today from Epic’s Mark Rein: “Case over. Jury finds for Epic on all counts.” Rein’s tweet suggests Epic prevailed in the counter-suit it filed against Silicon Knights.
GiantBomb reports Epic has been awarded $4.45 million in damages.
The two firms have been embroiled in various legalities since 2007 when Silicon Knights alleged Epic refused to provide adequate support for Unreal Engine 3 and used license fees to fund Gears of War’s development.
Silicon Knights’ chances of a win began to look shaky last week when it came to light that a judge had ruled the developer’s claims were worth just a few dollars.
