It’s been a really long time since the whole publishing fiasco began, but we can finally release our breath as Activision Blizzard and Double Fine have settled their lawsuits. This means that they won’t go to court, and the game will be released on schedule.
While the terms of the settlement haven’t been disclosed, it’s reasonable to assume that it involved Double Fine paying Activision Blizzard a sizable sum, giving them royalties from the game’s sales, or something like that. Whatever it was, hopefully Brutal Legend will sell like a beast and make any losses up!
If you’d like to take a trip down memory lane regarding this whole lawsuit business, BRUTAL!‘s extensive coverage of the situation’s unfolding documents it nicely.
