The ongoing saga that is the lawsuit against Xsolla and SoulBound Studios over the abrupt shut down of Chronicles of Elyria has received an update. Here are the details.
The official Discord for the lawsuit provided the update that pre-ligitation papers have officially been provided to Xsolla and Soubound Studios,
“lawyer has filed the pre-litigation letter to give Xsolla and Soulbound an opportunity to pay everyone back, which they won’t. That has been done. Now they need to wait 30 days, then file the complaint. So we are looking at the first week or so of September to file. @everyone”
“Soulbound purported to develop the game, Chronicles of Elyria (hereinafter “CoE”), and induced a following of approximately 250,000 community members. It generated in excess of $8 million in total sales for the game. Mr. Falls individually has spent more than $20,000 towards CoE’s development. To date, Soulbound has little or nothing to show its consumers, and investors, for their money.”
It continues, citing demands,
“We hereby demand that Soulbound (1) cease and desist from further refusal to refund costs associated with CoE, and (2) make full restitution to all purchasers of money obtained from pre-order sales of CoE. It is further demanded that Soulbound preserve all documents and other evidence which refer or relate to any of the above-described practice including but not limited to its dealings with Xsolla (USA), Inc. and Kickstarter regarding the sale of CoE, as well as all customer records for pre-order of CoE.”
