Activision “received little to no compensation” in Brutal Legend settlement

Raise your flagons of rawk in a toast to the American legal system! Activision’s litigious attempt to delay the publishing of Double Fine’s heavy metal opus Brütal Legend,  a decidedly douche move likened by an EA spokesman to “a husband abandoning his family and then suing after his wife meets a better-looking guy,” has been permanently put to rest with both sides settling, the same day the case was set to appear before a judge.

An anonymous source familiar with the confidential settlement revealed to the LA Times that not only will Brütal Legend remain right on schedule for its October release, but also that “it appears very likely that Activision received little to no compensation from Double Fine and agreed to a settlement to avoid losing its case in open court.”

No one can destroy the metal Activision, no one!
