Digital Homicide, the infamous studio that has recently been in the news over a lawsuit where the studio sued over 100 Steam users for USD 18 million, has now withdrawn their claim, saying they can no longer pursue the lawsuit.
“Upon filing this case, per advice of the local sheriff who could not help me or my business with a massive ARS-13-2921 criminal harassment problem on an Internet Store front and via email, The Plaintiffs business was destroyed completely financially disabling The Plaintiff, destroying usability of all current work effort, and untold other damages,” the filing says.
In an interview with TechRaptor, studio co-founder and developer James Romine Jr. said that he still believes the case is solid, but the studio has been financially crippled due to the removal of the games from Steam.
“Digital Homicide is destroyed. It’s been stomped into the ground from a thousand directions and use is discontinued,” Romine said. “I’m going back into the workforce and watching what’s really going on. Not gaming media gossip – the real stories are in the legal documents. Not talking about mine.”
The future course of action for the studio is still uncertain, though it’s possible that legal action could be retaken in future as dismissal without prejudice means that the studio can re-file the lawsuit.
