Pezlar and Buchta spent 128 days in a Greek jail. They were released from prison earlier this week after posting bail of €5,000 ($6,686) each.

Though Pezlar and Buchta are now home, they are not out of the woods just yet. Bohemia Interactive's Ota Vrtatko told Kotaku this week that their trial is on the horizon. It was previously stated that the pair faced a 20-year prison sentence if convicted. It is not clear if this remains the case.
