    Why is better to modernize engine than ship the game?
    You say that as if they cannot do both and that they are mutually exclusive.
    Also, the amount of time people spend writing code is generally not going to affect the speed of game shipment since all the other parts (assets, sound..) are done by other people. Most of the work is not programming, which is why most FOSS games just suck.

    Phoronix: Unvanquished Is Rewriting, Modernizing The Quake 3 Engine

    The Unvanquished open-source game is one of the most fascinating open-source game projects as they've strived for fundamental improvements in the ioquake3 engine and also to deliver high quality art assets and in-game content. Unvanquished is powered by the Daemon Engine, which is derived from the ioquake3 engine at its core -- the open-source version of id's Quake III engine. With the original code being the better part of two decades old, the developers are seeking to modernize and rewrite the code-base...
