    On the other hand, it would be nice to have a little infodrop on how well TFP are doing in securing what has been for them a major project too - both TFP and Iron galaxy have put in tons of work on 7d, and i'm sure some of them are feeling just as frustrated at tellfail right now. I know the fans and console players are eager for news, and narked off at smellytale almost as much as TFP and IG have to be - a little 411 to ease the passing of time and raise spirits may make the wait easier for those of us who are determined to see what comes.

    To be fair, if they're in legal action I don't think they can discuss it until more has been set in stone and done for legal reasons. It will take a bit of time, I hate to say (for you guys, I gave up on console versions 2 years ago lol).

    well since they overhauled pretty much the whole system on PC, couldnt they just partner up with someone else on consol side and leave telltale with the outdated version and released the overhaul on consol? since they did do all the work. how would telltale fight that? they stole our game and changed it? no it was funpimps game to begin with.

    another thought, why dont companies put in contracts projects must be completed or risk lawsuit?

    The PC version changes like daily. Ok maybe not exactly daily but the PC version is considered alpha for starters and console was sold as a finished version of what PC called A14. TT still has the console rights no matter what changes. The current consoles might not even be able to get anything that the PC currently has. No guarantee at all. Anything is possible so you can hope and what not but it isn't guaranteed. They said they would try to keep it updated the best they can. Once console reaches it's full limitation and technically it has without the unity update which is why console was/will eventually get some of that A16 update. Anyway gotta get back to work but right now TT has the rights so they either fight it to get those back or make a new game. But as said yes it would be nice to get word but if they have no new news then what are they going to say? They already gave the word what is going on. Why do they not have it in contacts? That I have no clue because I don't k ow how all those are wrote up and done.

    Any other company picking it up would have to start from square one. You'd be waiting another year to get the a15 version. It's much better to pick up the assets from Telltale and continue work with Iron Galaxy.

    I seriously doubt that TFP could just redo the update. The fact is, Telltale Games owns the rights to publish 7 Days to Die on console. The company is currently being sold of bit by bit to satisfy their creditors, plus it seems they are facing at least one lawsuit from former employees about they way they closed down. The more that comes out the more underhanded the whole shut down seems. Nevertheless, it seems obvious that unlike some games that had reversion rights written into the contract, this game still belongs to Telltale and is therefore an assett that the liquidators must attempt to sell for as much as possible. The courts are not involved in this unless TFP brings them in, or the employee lawsuits change how things are being done.

    That being said, I find it highly unlikely anyone will pay anything for the publishing rights to the console version of this game. It doesn't work right and probably never will, based on the capabilities of the consoles and the demands of the game. Because of that, this game is already in the tank as far as future sales go, and therefore the publishing rights aren't worth squat. Can TFP go to court to get them? probably, but not without a fight, and not without some costs that would never get recouped.

    TFP's willingness to put out any sort of monetary effort toward the console is pretty obvious. After all, where's the console Moderator/Laison?

    I am not without hope, perhaps a version 2 is in the works?

    You should read SylenThunder post just above yours, as he's right :

    I hope that you regain control of your property. A ex ea employee becoming on the board of directors and pushing out the founders of TT was a bad sign.
    When I first got the game, it was a blast, but I had no WiFi so no updates. If you want to complain about wanting a new update, try playing the original release, getting a mini bike together and driving it and having it go into the ether, dying and not being able to retrieve any of the items. Or you try to take a painting off a wall of a house during a blood moon and the entire house collapses into the ground.
    Is the game perfect? No, but there have been leaps and bounds in the stability and game play so far. Iím looking forward to TFPs regaining control and being able to make this game great on consoles even if it still isnít up to what a pc game can be.

    Iron Galaxy actually was contracted by TT to do the crossover, it could be possible that TFP just have to have them work on the new updates make a new version of the game and bypass TT all together. I would gladly pay for a new version of the game, especially if the profits went to TFP.

    A lot of this depends on who had better lawyers when the original deal between TFP and Telltale happened. From the look of things, TFP's lawyers were outgunned.

    I'm gonna become a lawyer to help the Fun Pimps. 7DTD is the best game ever. It just needs a bigger team.

    What a crock! You guys never did much with console but attempt to fix the buggy game. Every update was only for PC. You never added much content at all. No wonder they wanted nothing to do with you. 7 days to die was a good idea but without a good company.. of course it was going downhill real quick. Hopefully you guys sent out a patch that removes telltale publishing from the titles. Otherwise they might get more angry.

    What? You don't even know what is going on much less to try and say anything about it. If you did then you know everything you said isn't even accurate and makes no sense.
