Activision sues Double Fine over Brutal Legend; EA and Tim Schafer Respond

Activision today filed suit against Brutal Legend developer Double Fine, claiming they put down $15 Million to see the game done, but Double Fine failed to come through, asking for more money (an additional $7 Million) and more time (another nine months).

During their merger with Blizzard (last July), Activision dropped Brutal Legend from their publishing resume. It sat in limbo for half a year before later being picked up by EA. Activision is now claiming they still have rights to Brutal Legend, and are aiming to halt the game's scheduled October 13th release.

In response to all this shady legal business, EA likened it to "a husband abandoning his family and then suing after his wife meets a better looking guy." Double Fine president Tim Schafer had this to say: "Hey, if Activision liked it, then they should have put a ring on it. Oh great, now Beyonce is going to sue me too."

Take THAT Activision!
