THQ Facing Lawsuit Against Adidas

By Beyhan Moustafa on March 7, 2012, 6:30AM EDT

Sporting apparel giant Adidas has filed a lawsuit against publisher THQ for $10.6 million over what Adidas claims is a breach of contract. This comes after reports Adidas is seeking compensation over the game MiCoach 24/7, which THQ was expected to produce back in January 2012.

The lawsuit states that THQ was in talks with Adidas back in December 2011 that MiCoach 24/7 would not be ready for January. The developers responsible for the project had previously been laid off.

Adidas also accuse the publisher for refusing to hand the publishing materials over to another developer. Adidas are also seeking an injunction which prevents THQ from selling the projects rights over to another company.

On top of this lawsuit, the publisher is in the middle of realignment as significant layoffs have occurred as the company is moving away from kids games to save money.
