Their story alleges that resources were squandered from crowd funds (again, allegedly, they claim that only $8 million of the $90 million is left), and notes that current and former employees are not happy with the development process. A follow-up piece was published here that explains how they came to these conclusions, but CIG is claiming that their story doesn't have merit, and disputes specific claims (such as the fact that employees don't have ID cards, as alleged in the story).
CIG is demanding that The Escapist apologize to the company personally, publish the apology, and launch an internal investigation. The outlet has until the end of today to respond, lest legal action is taken in both the UK and the US. Yowza! This whole development saga just got a whole lot messier.
As of last week Escapist was going to go tour "various" CIG studios to talk to employees and possibly work things out, but one can only assume that's off the table now.
