It was revealed late last year EA would be picking up Double Fine's Brutal Legend
for publishing after the title was left amongst the abandoned collective dust of the Activision Blizzard merger (among other titles).
However, it appears Activision aren't at all happy about EA snapping the title up and have written a letter claiming they were still in negotiations with Double Fine re: publishing Brutal Legend (which stars Jack Black as the game's main character) and that, as a result, EA's publishing claim over the game is in fact invalid.
According to a report from Variety
, Activision have threatened both EA and Double Fine with legal action if the situation isn't sorted, but that it's more likely the Guitar Hero publisher are simply after some monetary satisfaction in much the same way they were sated by Atari for both Ghostbusters and The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena.
Surely they have enough money as it is - what are your thoughts - has Activision become the new Electronic Arts?
