Black Eyed Peas to thank for absence of new Black Eyed Peas games, everyone satisfied except Ubisoft

Ubisoft is suing Black Eyed Peas Music to the tune of $1,000,000 after the group failed to approve a new BEP game created by the developer/publisher as part of an ongoing license agreement.

Ubisoft claims it spent $233,000 creating a BEP game for iOS devices. It submitted the game to BEP Music for approval in March, which it was contractually obliged to respond to within 10 business days. Despite repeated requests, Ubisoft still hasn’t heard a peep from BEP Music. So it’s begun legal action.

Here’s a quote from the legal guff:

 "As a direct and proximate result of BEP Music's breach of contract, Ubisoft has suffered damages in an amount in excess of $1,000,000, which not only includes Ubisoft's out-of-pocket development costs, but also the profits Ubisoft has lost and will continue to lose as a result of BEP Music's breach of contract."

The Black eyed Peas Experience for Wii and Xbox 360 Kinect is so far the only title produced as part of Ubisoft’s partnership with the group. Until this matter is resolved, there will be no more Black Eyed Peas games.

    With all the people posting about distress over the lack of new BEP game I was going to create a support group for you guys. Unfortunately the BEP won't ever respond to any potential request for this support group so it will never come to be.

    I'd be pissed, too, if I had to shell out so much money (and time) to develop a game that I know is shitty. I hope Ubisoft gets every penny they're asking for.

    But seriously, did the first one REALLY sell well enough to warrant a sequel? I mean, for s start, it was a Kinect game. Second, it was a Black Eyed Peas game. And it's a seriously sad day for gaming when the Black Eyed Peas wont even condone the release of their own game, even on the iOS market.

    This is seriously shitty gaming news... It's so scared to see these all these lawsuits... On a brighter note, at least the Black Eyed Peas are getting sued, they're asses.

    Oh, no. God damn it. I am distraught. I do not want to live in this world anymore.
