A few years back, beleagured publisher THQ signed a deal with Adidas to make a fitness game based on the German firm’s miCoach technology. The deal was that game had to be on shelves by January 2012. It’s not, and is nowhere to be seen, so either THQ forgot all about it, or there were serious problems at THQ.
Which sounds about right.
Either way, Adidas is now suing for at least $US10 million, because it claims revenue has been lost as a result of the game they’d been promised not being an actual thing. Which again, sounds about right.
In addition to the fact the game was never delivered, Adidas allege that THQ also refused to “turn over video game publishing materials to an alternative developer of Adidas’ choosing”.
