Madden Co-Creator Launches Huge Lawsuit Against EA

Robin Antonick, the co-creator of the first Madden NFL game ever created, has launched a huge lawsuit against EA. He claims that the company owes him extremely large sums of royalties.

Antonick alleges that he signed a contract with EA in 1986, which entitled him to royalties of all future versions of the Madden franchise, and there have been a lot. Antonick states that the foundations of the game we play today were laid down by him, and that he hasn't received a royalty cheque since 1992.

Not only that, as compensation he wants a slice of the profits that the game has generated over the years, because of EA's fraud against him.
