En Masse Entertainment rejects NCsoft's claim that their game was made with stolen assets.
The legal battle between En Masse Enterainment and NC Soft over its new MMO TERA continues, as En Masse's publishing VP Chris Lee released a statement saying NCsoft is is off-base regarding its claim that several ex-employees used stolen assets to create the upcoming game.
"We are disappointed that NCsoft is attempting to mar the launch of TERA. Unfortunately we can't discuss much publicly due to the sensitivity of legal actions, but we do outright reject the NCsoft claims, and we are going to do everything in our power to defend and protect ourselves," Lee was quoted in a post on En Masse' official forums. "To all our supporters who have been anticipating the arrival of TERA - please know that this situation has no impact on our continuing efforts to realize the vision we have for our game."
The ex-NCsoft employees of accused of stealing were found guilty in a South Korean court in 2009, but that verdict is currently awaiting on an appeal. As of right now, TERA is due to launch in North America on the 1st of May, with a European launch shortly afterwards on the 3rd.
