Silicon Knights Ordered to Destroy Unsold Games

Back in 2007, Silicon Knights sued Epic Games claiming breach of contract because they didn’t provide enough support in regards to their Unreal Engine 3. In response, Epic Games then counter-sued saying that they had done no such thing, and went further to say that Silicon Knights were in fact the one who breached their contract by creating their own engine using Unreal Engine 3, which violates U.S. copyright and trade secret acts.

Well, Judge James C. Denver III of North Carolina’s Eastern District court filed a motion that Silicon Knights destroy unsold copies of both Too Human (X360) and X-Men: Destiny (multi-platform) after the court found that Silicon Knights, out of the total 1,442 trade secrets presented by Epic Games, had violated 333 of them.

This can’t be good for Silicon Knights. Riding high last generation after releasing critical successes Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes on Nintendo’s GameCube, they have since fallen on hard times after the high expectations and low sales and reviews of Too Human and X-Men Destiny. Here’s hoping they can recover from this and get back to working on Eternal Darkness 2 (?). Keep it here for more info on
