After the Human Head Studios closed the doors immediately after the release of the action RPG Rune 2, the publisher Ragnarok filed a lawsuit. The developers now gave the publisher a hard drive with the source code so that patches can be developed. The lawsuit is upheld.
The situation around the action RPG Rune 2 is certainly one of the more curious in 2019. The game barely appeared on November 12, the developer studio closed. Publisher Ragnarok was as surprised as the customers. Since the team did not want to give the game's source code to its publisher so that it could develop patches and updates for the game itself, the lawsuit filed and claimed $ 100 million in damages.
Rune 2 patches should come
Now things are moving. The development team, now part of Bethesda, has given Ragnarok a hard drive with the Rune 2 source code. The publisher analyzes this and sets up test systems to be able to work on a first patch. Rune 2 buyers are promised that they can count on further support.
However, this does not change the complaint. Ragnarok sticks to it and continues to seek $ 100 million in damages.
