Well, at least they admit to pirating/cracking the game and releasing a gimped version to recoup some quick cash.
Uh where did they say that exactly?
It's easy to play the victim, but all we seek is that Frogwares respect its commitments both in the contract and as demanded by the courts.
As I stated yesterday, if Nacon was the problem Frogwares could have easily got an injunction against them distributing and selling the game. That isn't the case, ergo it's more than likely that it's Frogwares that's in breach.
Frogwares tried to get an injunction and Nacon actually pulled out an excuse that the injunction couldn't be imposed during COVID-19 because of emergency measures in place in France. I'm not sure if the courts either bought that or haven't ruled yet.
This situation smells fishy from both sides. Frogwares is providing a lot of supposed evidence of Nacon's wrongdoing. At the same time, they're presenting it in a very one-sided way (obviously) and trying to litigate through Twitter and blogs instead of through lawyers and courts. Frogwares is also suing Focus Home Interactive, for similar reasons to why they're suing Nacon. As far as I can tell, no other developers have ever had legal beef with these two publishers. Not being a lawyer and just based on my read from the outside looking in, it looks like Frogwares is trying to gin up reasons to get out of existing contracts with publishing partners but also that Nacon is trying to exact some pretty petty revenge, instead of just letting the courts sort it out. If they're in the right, Frogwares will get their due. The whole thing's very weird.
