This has got to be one of the quickest video game related lawsuit turn around. Hell, the Silicon Knights V Epic lawsuit is still going near as I can tell. Not quite sure the outcome here though, just that Activision told the Los Angeles supreme court that a settlement has been made.
This comes on the day that the two sides were scheduled to make their arguments before the judge. There is no word on what sort of settlement was made, but it apparently hasn’t been filed with the court yet.
I can’t help but wonder if this is due to the countersuit Double Fine filed a few weeks after the initial lawsuit was filed. If Activision lost their initial suit, then the countersuit it might have been exceptionally bad press for the. I don’t see the settlement ending with Activision horking over any money though.
