Recent Crytek v CIG/RSI filing, appears to show a behind-the-scenes battle either brewing, or already in full swing.
I am referring to the CIG statements regarding discovery; specifically as it pertains to financials.
This is p6 of the filing.
I predict that they WILL lose.
That date was Nov 2014. And they had 12, then 18 months, to make good on that promise to backers.
Around the expiration of the 18 month term, they changed the ToS again, and removed these conditions.
Backers have to now wonder why.
As CIG have been selling & raising money, any/all claims as to it not being a released product, would be immaterial and out of scope due to the financial GAINS.
How does this all relate to having the project financials in public discover?
They would only be interested in the financials in order to accurately calculate what they believe they are due in terms of calculating damages.
This is all standard procedure btw.
It's going to be an absolute nightmare for CIG. I have to believe they know this.
That Crytek declined to entertain settlement talks at this point, speaks volumes.
And I don't think CIG expected for Crytek to make that public in this filing.
That's why Bar assoc has articles like this
If CIG resists, well that's why FRCP Rule 37 exists
Our goal is to bring to the attention of the court key issues about the project and which are otherwise NOT part of Crytek's claims.
It will also contain material that is NOT currently in the public domain.
See this accounting of this important day in the project?
Aside from the fact that we now know that Crytek - not CIG -
created those tech demos - Ben's claim below has been PROVEN to be FALSE
The emperor had no clothes. It was an illusion.
