American McGee Defends UE3

In response to

the charges

leveled at Epic Games by Silicon Knights in their lawsuit, American McGee

had this

to say to Gamasutra:

"Having used UE3 to build Grimm and spent considerable time in the past working with Id’s tools, I’ve followed this story with amazement," says McGee. "To expect a licensed engine, fresh out of the box, would require no modification or improvements to achieve development goals on a new title is ludicrous."

Continues McGee, "But to build an entirely new engine as an alternative to improving an existing one - sounds a bit unreasonable. And to build that new engine inside 1 year, then ship a title with it? Now things are starting to sound surreal."

Looking forward to seeing how things play out, McGee concludes, "My guess is that there’s more than a little UE3 still in Too Human."
