Webzen eventually took a leagal action against Red 5 Korea.
It said Red 5 Korea has breached the Asia publishing agreement of <Firefall> between Webzen and Red 5 Studios.
Red 5 Korea has recently distributed press releases about famous SF author Olson Scott Card’s involvement in <Firefall>’s scenario and holding an offline test for public.
Webzen complained that Red 5 Korea is working without its permission. Allegedly the press release about the author was about to be released from Webzen as well.
For the offline test, it was actually negotiated together but Red 5 Korea requested delay and announced its schedule unilaterally with Webzen logo without permission.
Webzen said “We have been preparing to reveal <Firefall> along with <MU 2> and <Archlord 2> at G-star 2011, but we heard Red 5 Korea is trying to attend G-star 2011 independantly with <Firefall>. So we decided to take a legal action.
