MO is based on two Epic Games products Unreal Engine 3 and Atlas. Now Atlas is made by Epic China and as far as I know MO is only game that has come out using it. This could mean that:
A) It's much more expensive than just UE3 license since it has more
It's much more cheaper since they want references
So based on that we can say that:
A) SV got screwed by crappy product
Epic China got screwed by incompetent game maker(SV)
Just to clear last comment.
