ARK Developer Studio Wildcard sued by ‘Trendy’ Dungeon Defenders publisher over employee poaching?
The players involved are Trendy Entertainment, the company behind Dungeon Defenders, and Studio Wildcard, the start-up game dev behind Ark, which launched in Early Access last year on both Steam and Xbox One. In a lawsuit filed against Wildcard in December of 2015, Trendy alleges that their former creative director, game designer Jeremy Stieglitz, breached his contract and has been secretly working on Ark since he resigned from his position in 2014.
Sounds suspicious. I mean, the only thing I’ve ever stolen in ARK is poop. And the occasional stack of meat…but I always return what I use, Chippy! I swear!!
The lawsuit, which is ongoing, is filled with allegations about Stieglitz and his involvement with Ark: Survival Evolved.
Sounds dishy. You should just head to Kotaku and get the full scoop
PS: Dig the photoschlop? I made it myself!
