Activision / EA battle over Brutal Legend (CVG 16/2/09)

Post by VampiricPadraig on Mon Feb 16, 2009 4:45 am

Activision didn't want action game Brutal Legend and abandoned it like a slightly warm chocolate bar. EA picked it up, put it in the cooler and gave it some loving. But now Activision wants some cash...

Activision has apparently contacted EA over legal concerns about the publishing rights for the game, following news of the EA's rescue.

We've contacted Activision for confirmation, but the word on the street is that Activision claims to hold publishing rights and could be seeking a payout from EA. While Double Fine holds the position that it owns the rights and was clear to strike up a deal with EA.

EA, meanwhile, has told The CutScene: "We doubt that Activision would try to sue. That would be like a husband abandoning his family and then suing after his wife meets a better looking guy."
