Yesterday, I wrote about the joyous news that Activision and Double Fine have settled their legal skirmish out of court. However, that wasn't good enough for some of you. A few people wanted the dirty details of the Brutal Legend settlement. Thanks to The LA Times sexy Alex Pham and Ben Fritz, you now have them:
"A person familiar with the settlement, who requested not to be identified because the details are being kept confidential, confirmed that Brutal Legend would be released in October, as Electronic Arts had previously planned. The settlement ends all litigation involving Double Fine, EA and Activision over the game.
The person noted that the settlement came together in the last week after the judge in L.A. County Superior Court in Santa Monica said last Thursday that he was strongly inclined to rule against Activision's motion to stop the game's release.
Though the person declined to disclose any details of the settlement, it appears very likely that Activision received little to no compensation from Double Fine and agreed to a settlement to avoid losing its case in open court."
I'm still convinced that the case was settled by Double Fine arranging a Rob Halford whipping session for Activision CEO Bobby Kotick...but that's just me.
I know a lot of you view Activision as gaming's biggest villain, so does the news of the company receiving "little to no compensation" make you happy? Sad? Meh? Leave a comment and let me know (please)!
