Detroit Developer Quantic Dream Sues French Media Over Articles On Toxic Work Conditions

From Kotaku: "Last week, Quantic Dream founder and CEO David Cage flew to New York City to show demos of his dramatic new PS4 game, Detroit: Become Human, to press. In his home city of Paris, meanwhile, a different type of drama was unfolding: French journalists were defending themselves against Cage’s legal charges."

The story is too old to be commented.

It's freaking good that they are fighting back with all the nasty journalists out there. They have nothing else to do but ruined somebody's else reputation.

Definitely agree that journalists suck, but let's not act like developers and publishers don't treat their employees like shit. There have been other companies where employees get screwed. Just saying it's hard to tell nowadays

'this is the first incident of a video game studio taking legal action against the press for negative reporting'
Nope its not for 'negative reporting' its for smear campaign!

Whatever happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? The media, and especially the Games media are absolutely disgraceful when it comes to this stuff. The slightest accusation against a person of company and every one reaches for their pitchforks because the accusation must be true. The same thing happened with Warhorse studio's with accusations of racism just because they recreated historical 15th century bohemia in Kingdom Come, and didn't put any people of colour in it. I hope Quantic Dream win the case, journalists need to stop throwing people under the bus just to create controversy for clicks and hits, it ruins peoples lives. Don't get me wrong, I am in no way condoning racism or sexist behaviour. However the process of ascertaining intent in relation to circumstance has to remain sacrosanct. In other words, people must be considered to be innocent until they can be proven guilty by the correct processes, and not by media sensationalism and click bait headlines.
