Very surprised to hear this but Crytek have taken on Kevin Minnick of Skadden as representation against CIG....
From the documents which can be read at https://www.scribd.com/document/367101474/Crytek-v-CIG
"Crytek and Defendants agreed to preliminary license terms, and Crytek invested significant time and expense in creating impressive demonstrations and proofs-of-concept that were used to persuade the public to contribute financially to a "crowdfunding" campaign to support development of the video game."
Some other interesting bits listed here https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/384948-Star-Citizen-Discussions-v7?p=6210060&viewfull=1#post6210060
Hopefully this gets settled asap.
