Brutal Legend Lawsuit Settled

Double Fine's action game Brutal Legend will not be delayed from its October release after all, as the lawsuit between the developer and former publisher Activision has been settled out of court, according to the Associated Press.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. A hearing scheduled for today to determine whether the suit would progress to court has been cancelled. nope Activision was suing to prevent the release of Brutal Legend, claiming that it never relinquished its rights to the title before Double Fine signed a new publishing deal with Electronic Arts. Double Fine maintained that Activision was unfairly attempting to block the release to avoid competition.

In any case, it's all over now, and the game will be released without impediment.
