8-Year Fan-Made Game Project Shut Down By Activision

An anonymous reader writes “Activision, after acquiring Vivendi, became the new copyright holder of the classic King’s Quest series of adventure game. They have now issued a cease and desist order to a team which has worked for eight years on a fan-made project initially dubbed a sequel to the last official installment, King’s Quest 8. This stands against the fact that Vivendi granted a non-commercial license to the team, subject to Vivendi’s approval of the game after submission. After the acquisition, key team members had indicated on the game’s forums (now stripped of their original content by order of Activision) that Activision had given the indication that it intended to keep its current fan-game licenses, but was not interested in issuing new ones.”
