Will lawsuit prevent AC3 from being released?

Do you guys think that this guy will actually be successful in suing Ubisoft? if so, does this mean no AC3? :(

Anyone with a brain can see that this guy is full of crap, he's waited almost 5 years after the release of AC1 to file a lawsuit? Pathetic

However, this theory relies on the fact that the majority of people have a brain, something which is sadly untrue

It's possible he didn't waited. From the outside it is a hidden dual story you have to dig for. Not everyone is a gamer. And yes if he wins the case that means no ac3. He is suing for over a $1mil and to stop the games production.

It's unlikely. His arguments are mostly stretches at best, and outright wrong at worst.

An injunction could come up but what is more likely is both parties will settle very quickly so nothing happens.

hes gonna be VEEEERY unpopular if he does...

in my country its all up in the news about a man that shot a family dog...

returned it 21 times, 3 of which was to police, got tired of it and annoyed of having to worry for wildlife (hes a hunter) did an official warning, dog still came he shot it...

even though he was in full legal right to do so hes earned deaththreats, which he, from a source of mine, should easily be able to sue, because thats not illegal...

this however is closer to and therefore if he goes through... it wont help him scrap...
he will have trouble living his life because this is a situaiton worse than what i mentioned, and that guy had to disappear for fear of his life.
And it has really created chaos...

now if a simple case like that can rile up a whole country of over 5 million people... what do you think this would create??
... id rather not think about it if thats ok.

Anybody remember the hot coffee mod?
It be along the lines of that but a lot worse because the game wouldn't have a previous release.

That's a terrible analogy, it doesn't work at all.

Hot Coffee was such a big deal because it was a full featured and explicit sex minigame still locked away in the files for GTA:SA (the ESRB's M rating does not allow for content as explicit as Hot Coffee [which would push it to AO - which almost all brick and mortar shops will not sell]), removing that content did not alter the story or gameplay at all.

This content that the guy claims Ubisoft et al copied from him is a very core part of the series.

It wasn't an analogy, it was an example about how lawsuits can affect games and the consumer end of it. Many many people, especially Xbox and pc players who were slow on the draw in the release of the game were very furious with the hacker who discovered it. As the game was pulled off shelves almost everywhere and for a decent whole it was unclear whether it would ever be released. Even EBay wouldn't allow you to sell it unless you categorized it only under "adult entertainment".
And beyond that the lawsuits and settlements still continued well into 2008
