Last year Frontier Developments and Atari went head to head in with Planet Coaster and Roller Coaster Tycoon World with both games releasing within a day of each other. The battle is set to continue as Frontier is now suing Atari over unpaid RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 royalties.
Frontier are seeking $2.2 million from Atari according to the story that appeared on TMZ. Frontier confirmed to PC Invasion that action is being taken after Atari denied Frontier an audit on sales numbers.
“We can confirm Frontier is currently pursuing a complaint against Atari. We have attempted to resolve this issue without legal action since April 2016. We have so far been denied our contractual right to audit by Atari, and we are unfortunately left with no other way to resolve our concerns. We are unable to offer any further comment while the matter is subject to due legal process.”
