Wizards of the Coast and HEX: Shards of Fate Settle Lawsuit
Wizards of the Coast, Cryptozoic Entertainment and Hex Entertainment (creators of the free to play TGC, HEX: Shards of Fate) have entered into a settlement agreement over the popular digital trading-card game Hex: Shards of Fate. After filing suit against HEX claiming "willful infringement of intellectual property rights," the parties have entered into a settlement agreement and license with undisclosed terms.
“Wizards of the Coast has always welcomed new games to the trading card game genre, and we encourage TCG fans to not only play Magic, but to try many different games. However, we will not hesitate to take action to protect our intellectual property and the amazing work of hundreds of dedicated Magic team members around the world. That is why we brought this lawsuit and why we are happy to announce its resolution through a settlement and license that both protects the valuable intellectual property of Magic: The Gathering and allows Cryptozoic and Hex to move forward with Hex: Shards of Fate,” said Wizards of the Coast CEO, Greg Leeds.
Makes you wonder exactly what the terms may have been...
