Ubisoft Sues the Black Eyed Peas for $1 Million

Ubisoft is suing the Black Eyed Peas for breach of contract over the development of an iOS game using the band’s name and brand.

The publisher created an iPhone and iPad version of dance game The Black Eyed Peas Experience, which originally launch for Wii and Xbox 360 last year, however the game has been in limbo since completion in March because the band is yet to either approve or refuse the game’s launch.

“Since March 2012, and despite Ubisoft’s repeated requests, BEP Music has breached the contract by failing and refusing to either approve or disapprove the IOS game in writing or otherwise,” legal documents seen by Courthouse News state. “Ubisoft has performed all of the obligations required of it under the contract, except as those obligations that have been excused by BEP Music’s conduct or by operation of law.”

Ubisoft has apparently already spent around $233,000 on the port and is suing the band for $1 million to recoup development costs and lost profits up to this point.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
