Yesterday we wrote that the detective horror The Sinking City was again removed from sale on Steam. This came after developer Frogwares accused Nacon of trying to sell a pirated copy of the game.
The publisher did not remain silent and published an open letter with retaliatory accusations. In particular, the company claims that under the contract it had the right to return to Steam a copy of the game, “adapted by a third party”, as Frogwares itself has repeatedly refused to provide the desired version. But even in this case, the Ukrainian studio would still receive all the royalties due to it from the sales of The Sinking City .
Nacon also announced that the Paris Court of Appeal found the developer’s attempts to unilaterally terminate the contract with the publisher illegal. The court ordered Frogwares to abide by its previous agreement and refrain from any action that might violate it.
As a result, Nacon threatened to sue Frogwares again for failing to comply with the previous judgment. It seems that the conflict is far from being resolved.
