Planet Coaster dev Frontier is suing Atari

Creator of Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster , Frontier Development, is suing Atari after the publisher failed to royalties for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.

According to TMZ , Frontier believes it's due $2.2 million more than it received in royalties for the 2004 theme park sim RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and planning on pursuing a legal complaint.

"We can confirm Frontier is currently pursuing a complaint against Atari. We have attempted to resolve this issue without legal action since April 2016. We have so far been denied our contractual right to audit by Atari, and we are unfortunately left with no other way to resolve our concerns. We are unable to offer any further comment while the matter is subject to due legal process," Frontier's chief operating officer David Walsh said in a statement.

TMZ says Frontier Developments has been working with Atari since 2003... Atari went bankrupt in 2013, but Frontier continued to work under an "amended" contract. Now that is back on track with allegedly higher sales figures for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 than previously thought.
