On Monday, game publisher Interplay filed suit in Los Angeles against game developer BattleBorne, claiming that the developer improperly terminated an agreement to produce the game Airborne (now known as Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers, and now being published by Acclaim). Interplay says the developers refused to return a $250,000 advance tendered to BattleBorne to develop the game. The suit alleges breach of contract, among other claims, and seeks the $250,000 advance--and interest. When contacted, an Acclaim spokesperson asserted that "Combat Elite is very much the company's property." The game maintains its June release date.
