Yesterday, we reported on the fact that the lawyer representing the suit received two letters. Well, today over on the Discord channel, the letters were made available: one from Soulbound Studios, and one from Xsolla.
The SBS letter purports that the lawyers representing the suit did not explain how or why the shut down announcement from SBS was a “clear misreprentation.” It continues, citing that businesses changing strategy is not a misrepresentation, and that the client has not provided any facts or evidence to legally support the claim,
“More importantly, however, other than theconclusory allegation, your client has provided no facts or evidence to legally support the claim. Thus, e.g., your client provides nothing to suggest that, at the time of the so-called “misrepresentation” Soulbound knew or should have known that therepresentation was false, as opposed to a reevaluation of the company’s position and a desire to continue operations. Again, changing direction following a business reevaluation is not illegal.”
The letter from Xsolla claims that they have no role in the development or distribution of games like Chronicles of Elyria, and that SBS is actually the party responsible for development. Therefore, Xsolla acted more like a third party between customers and SBS,
“Xsolla completed sales and collected payments for CoE on SBS’s behalf, and transferred the proceeds to SBS. If SBS authorizes a return to Mr. Falls and provides Xsolla with the funds SBS obtained from Mr. Falls, Xsolla will refund Mr. Falls’ payment method.”
Feel free to read the letters in full if you’re interested.
