3D Realms Drops Lawsuit Against Gearbox

3D-Realms

3D Realms has officially withdrawn the lawsuit the company had filed against Gearbox. They had filed the lawsuit back in June and claimed that Gearbox blocked an independent audit to document royalties earned from their game, Duke Nukem Forever. The original Duke Nukem developer sought $2 million in the lawsuit, but has now dropped the case entirely.

CEO of 3D Realms, Scott Miller, issued a statement saying,

“After reviewing evidence regarding our business affairs, and without any money exchanging hands, we have satisfactorily resolved any and all differences that we perceived against Gearbox.”

Miller also offered “genuine apologies” to Gearbox CEO and President Randy Pitchford “for any damage that our lawsuit may have caused to the relationship.”

You can read the full statement to the press below:

To Whom It May Concern-

After reviewing evidence regarding our business affairs, and without any money exchanging hands, we have satisfactorily resolved any and all differences that we perceived against Gearbox.

In all sincerity, we regret the misunderstanding that instigated our lawsuit. Now that we better understand–and appreciate–the actual nature of our business matters, we have voluntarily withdrawn our claims against Gearbox, with genuine apologies to Randy for any damage that our lawsuit may have caused to the relationship.

Sincerely,
Scott Miller
