That has to really suck... those engines cost an absolutely INSANE amount of money to license. I remember the Serious Engine 1.0 was like $100,000 for an internal project, and $250,000 + a percentage for a retail game. And Croteam was hardly a big business then.

Anyone know how much it costs to license UE3? Im guessing $500,000 to a mil + a pretty large cut from sales.

I cant imagine spending that much money on an engine and not releasing a product using it...
