Rocktober lives! Brutal Legend lawsuit settled

It's been a bumpy road for Brutal Legend, what with all the legal mumbo jumbo surrounding the game. It started as Activision suing Double Fine for allegedly "improperly" transferring the rights from Activision to Electronic Arts.

Then, last month, Double Fine filed a countersuit that stated Activision wanted "to kill [Brutal Legend] completely so that Guitar Hero would not have to face the competition." Needless to say, the whole situation spiraled out of control and was a real mess for all parties involved.

Good news for us consumers comes from IndustryGamers who reports that the Brutal Legend lawsuit has been settled. Activision's motion to block the game's Rocktober 13 release date was pushed back to today, but according to the Associated Press, the hearing has been canceled.

The Grinch couldn't steal Rocktober, at least not this time.
