От Bethesda Softworks поступил ответ на открытое письмо фирмы МАДия.
Надо понимать — официальный.
Письмо прислал Pete Hines.
I know I spoke to several of you who weren't sure what to make of the letter sent from Madia. Below is our official response to that letter and the only comment we will have on the matter. If you chose not to post the original letter from Madia, then I see no need for you to post our response to it either, and would not expect you to do so.
Response to Madia's Open Letter to Bethesda Softworks November 20, 2001
We at Bethesda Softworks regret the issuance by Madia Ltd. of an "Open Letter" yesterday, which presented misleading allegations about Bethesda's role as publisher of Echelon in North America.
Bethesda has no contractual obligations to Madia. Madia developed Echelon for Buka, which in turn contracted with Bethesda to publish Echelon in North America. Bethesda has been in discussions with Buka concerning a series of
contractual issues, including the late delivery of the game by Madia. We do not intend to address such matters in the press.
Be assured that the Open Letter by Madia presents an unbalanced and false statement of facts concerning the game and Bethesda's actions as the game's publisher. And nothing in the discussions between Bethesda and Buka has prevented Madia from releasing an Echelon patch for fans of the game.
Также настоятельно рекомендую прочитать по этому же вопросу очень яркую заметку от экспертов сайта www.rgw.ru
, называется "Bethesda Softworks кинула Мадию"
