Adidas has filed a lawsuit against THQ due to a breach of contract over the failed production of an Adidas game.
The lawsuit has been filed Multnomah County Circuit Court, Oregon, by Adidas who have stated that this breach has caused more than $10 million worth of damages. The game in question, which had a working title of MiCoach 24/7, was supposed to have released January 2012. An agreement for the product had been agreed back in December 2010.
When THQ hit its huge financial troubles it informed Adidas that work could not continue on the title as the staff were laid off. The failure to bring this game to market is what has sparked the lawsuit. Adidas is also accusing THQ of not making available the game materials that have already been developed so they can be passed onto a developer of Adidas’ choice.
Adidas wants a jury trial set up for this lawsuit and is also requesting an injunction that stops THQ from selling the rights to the MiCoach game.
