Aliens Colonial Marines Lawsuit: Sega Says Gearbox is to Blame
The Aliens Colonial Marines lawsuit has been going back and forth between Gearbox and Sega so far. However, Sega has finally responded to the allegations made by Gearbox Software and it looks like they have put all the blame on the developer.
First off, Sega has claimed in their response to the Aliens Colonial Marines lawsuit that there had been eight different instances when the developer had made announcements regarding the game without the approval from Sega. Secondly, an email was also attached with the response as evidence.
The conversation is between Matt Eyre the general manager and director of brand marketing for core games at Sega of America and other officials of Sega after the former had had a conversation with Gearbox vice president Steve Gibson and it reads:
“I spoke face to face to Gibson [of Gearbox] about their persistent panel leaking. Effectively — it’s Randy [Pitchford] doing whatever the f*** he likes. Apparently he did it twice on BL2 [Borderlands 2] also, again, against all plans and despite the fact they asked him not to. I think our best result here is that we have no more panel sessions… What’s the question about total/ potential impressions – I don’t understand it. I will chase on the contract now.”
Things are really getting heated up between Gearbox Software and Sega; and for one game from back in 2013. The next hearing of the Aliens Colonial Marines lawsuit is on October 29.
