Epic is incredible : they are contracting someone (Icculus I guess) to port their closed source game to Mac and Linux and they don't even know where the things are ?
It's not the way I'm used to follow my contractants in my job. I guess that way my boss wouldn't appreciate it.
Could you imagine this scenario :
- Hey, were are we with that project we've paid for ?
- I don't know
- Well... Could you do something to know ?
- ... not really. I can't reach him, I don't know where he is... And to be honnest, I don't really care.
- Ok, do you see that door over there ?
I guess the next step in UT3 linux/mac client will be to say : "the financial crysis urge us to stop any further development for the port. Too much expensive, too few potential clients, we stop everything. Call the banks and the traders responsible for the world crysis and fµck them all".
I bet a cookie (a real cookie, not a firefox cookie ) that the crysis is the perfect story for ending that mess from Epic/Midway.
