Atari Sued Over Unpaid Royalties for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Dev
Frontier is owed $2.2 million in unpaid royalties.
Frontier Developments may have seen great success with Planet Coaster, its spiritual successor to the Rollercoaster Tycoon franchise, but it’s currently fighting for unpaid royalties owed for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.
Frontier noted that it was suing publisher Atari which still owes $2.2 million in royalties for the third game. This was after Atari filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and Frontier amended its contract.
Though the original story broke through TMZ, Frontier COO David Walsh told Eurogamer that, “We can confirm Frontier is currently pursuing a complaint against Atari. We have attempted to resolve this issue without legal action since April 2016.
“We have so far been denied our contractual right to audit by Atari, and we are unfortunately left with no other way to resolve our concerns. We are unable to offer any further comment while the matter is subject to due legal process.”
