Double Fine has filed a countersuit against Activision over the publisher trying to stop Brutal Legend from being released.
A hearing is currently scheduled for July 30 for Acti’s motion, and Double Fine claims the original suit was filed by its former publishing partner to “protect the sales of Guitar Hero.”
Interestingly, according to the lawsuit, DF is claiming Activision canceled the project after acquiring Vivendi when it was realized Brutal Legend could not be turned into a “Guitar Hero sequel.”
Expect this to get even uglier until the judge weighs-in later this month.
