Publisher Fishtank Interactive rebuffs UK developer Headfirst Productions' claim that the publishing contract for the upcoming horror game has been terminated.
Ravensburger Interactive Media, the parent company of game publisher Fishtank Interactive, released a statement today that says that the agreement between Ravensburger and UK developer Headfirst Interactive concerning the upcoming horror action game Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth has not been validly terminated by Headfirst and is still considered valid by the publisher. The statement was made in reaction to an announcement earlier this month made by Headfirst that stated the developer had terminated the publishing agreement due to breach of contract by Ravensburger.
Ravensburger also said that it will take legal action against any unauthorized assignment of the rights held by Ravensburger Interactive Media. This statement may indicate that the disagreement between the companies could end up in court. We'll post more information about the situation as it becomes available.
