Silicon Knights' Too Human has been pulled from Xbox Live Marketplace.

The game remains listed on the XBLM website with a trailer, screens and a description, but all options to purchase the game have been removed.

This comes after Silicon Knights defeat in a lengthy legal battle with Epic Games over Unreal Engine 3 - the tech used to power Too Human and several other Silicon Knights titles.

The ruckus kicked off back in 2007 when Silicon Knights served Epic with a lawsuit claiming it was "mislead" about how complete Unreal Engine 3 code actually was.

Epic was accused of "sabotaging" Unreal Engine 3 licensees by withholding an improved version of the engine and investing licensing fees in Gears of War development rather than the game making tool.

Despite Silicon Knight's seeming confidence in its case, the the Carolina court jury ruled in favour of Epic Games in May 2012, ordering the Too Human developer to pay Epic $4.45 million in damages and destroy all unsold copies of games it had produced using Unreal Engine 3 at its own expense, including Too Human and X-Men: Destiny.

At the time of writing, X-Men: Destiny remains available for purchase via XBLM.
