Tri Synergy has confirmed that it is to “discontinue distribution of Limbo of the Lost in both retail and online outlets” after the game was shown to bear striking similarities to Bethesda RPG, Oblivion.

“We have contacted the developer, Majestic, and are anxiously awaiting their response,” the firm said in a press release. “As soon as we know more on this matter we will issue another statement.”

Full thing after the link.

Sharon, MA, May 11th, 2008 – Tri Synergy, Inc. (www.trisynergy.com) would like to publish an official comment regarding recent comparisons of level design and artwork between Majestic Studios’ Limbo of the Lost and Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion/Eidos Interactive’s Thief: Deadly Shadows.

Tri Synergy is just as shocked as everyone else is by the recent screenshot comparisons. At no point during our dealings with Majestic Studios up until the point that the comparison was first publicly made by a third party did we have any knowledge of these similarities. Additionally, Tri Synergy will discontinue distribution of Limbo of the Lost in both retail and online outlets.

We have contacted the developer, Majestic, and are anxiously awaiting their response. As soon as we know more on this matter we will issue another statement.
