Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack plans to appeal the recent court decision in favor of Epic Games, which would see Dyack's studio paying Epic $4.45 million in damages.

Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack plans to appeal the recent court decision in favor of Epic Games, which would see Dyack's studio paying Epic $4.45 million in damages.

The decision, reached yesterday by the North Carolina courts, follows an almost five-year legal battle over a civil suit filed against Epic Games by Too Human developer Silicon Knights. Though the suit claimed Epic ignored its responsibilities to Unreal Engine 3 licensors in favor of focusing all its time and money on developing Gears of War, the court disagreed, instead rewarding Epic $4.45 million in a countersuit claiming Silicon had breached its licensing agreement.

"We are disappointed by the outcome and we plan on appealing," Dyack told Polygon.
