Master Creating, the good golks behind the upcoming Restricted Area, have recently terminated their publishing agreement with British publisher 4am Entertainment according to a press release sent to RPGDot.
MASTER CREATING TERMINATES PUBLISHING CONTRACT WITH UK PUBLISHER 4AM ENTERTAINMENT, LTD.
Game Developer Master Creating announces today that they have cancelled their publishing agreement for RESTRICTED AREA with 4am Entertainment for a major breach of contract. Spokesman Jan Beuck: â€œ4am didnâ€™t pay the advance payment in time â€“ this is a substantial and un-remedied breach. We are currently considering legal action.â€
RESTRICTED AREA is an action-RPG set in the dark future and is already in the alpha phase. Master Creating, an independent game development studio based in Hamburg, Germany, is now seeking a new publisher.
Well, that sucks. To Jan Beuck and his team, we say good luck. To 4am Entertainment, we just quietly remind you of another company that had a tendency not to pay its third party developers. Interplay. So, 4am, unless you want to pull a couple Lionhearts and fail utterly, you'd better smarten up.
