Brutal Legend Crushes Lawsuit Threat

Posted by | August 7, 2009

The upcoming Double Fine game of heavy metal and skull-crushing destruction, one Brutal Legend, has been trapped in a legal limbo under threat of lawsuit. The vast and mighty giant Activision once held sway over Brutal Legend, but lost the game to Electronic Arts, who, employing the grace of shadows and air, stole it away in the night. Activision unleashed their legal hounds, and here we are.

A settlement was always extremely likely, though, given that Brutal Legend was ready for an October release, and that’s exactly what happened. On Wednesday, Activision’s lawyers broke camp and returned to their lands of ice and snow.

Here’s the trailer, in case you missed it.
