Once upon a time, 3D Realms decides to blame Gearbox Software for not paying out royalties to the tune of $2 million, and sues the company for a game in development Hell for over 15 years that had been panned critically upon its release in 2011.
It was only yesterday that 3D Realms has decided to drop its lawsuit against Gearbox.
The official Press Release issued by CEO Scott Miller of 3D Realms reads:
To Whom It May Concern-
After reviewing evidence regarding our business affairs, and without any money exchanging hands, we have satisfactorily resolved any and all differences that we perceived against Gearbox.
In all sincerity, we regret the misunderstanding that instigated our lawsuit. Now that we better understand–and appreciate–the actual nature of our business matters, we have voluntarily withdrawn our claims against Gearbox, with genuine apologies to Randy for any damage that our lawsuit may have caused to the relationship.
Individually & On Behalf of Apogee Software Ltd d/b/a 3DRealms Entertainment
Just another case of lame lawsuits and crying over nothing. It’s been a slow news week. Forgive me.
