True Games Sues Petroglyph over Source Code

True Games Sues Petroglyph over Source Code - Mytheon - MMORPG.com

True Games, the publisher of Mytheon, is suing Mytheon developers Petroglyph due to the fact that Petroglyph has failed to produce a Gold Master for Mytheon by the designated deadline and is refusing to turn over the game's source code to True Games so that they can proceed on their own. The deadline was previously set at November 15th, 2009, but was then moved to February 1st, 2010, which was also missed.

According to the court documents, Petroglyph informed True Games that a Gold Master of Mytheon would be available by the end of March, though they required additional funding to do so.

The court documents also reveal that Petroglyph CEO Chuck Kroegel claims that Mytheon was "NEVER conceived to be a full-blown MMO, which costs upwards of $15 million and three to five years to complete. The trend, however, over the last months has been to move this game to the scope of a full-blown MMO."

The full court documents can be found here.
