“Last Minute Legal Rights Issue” To Blame
Those looking forward to seeing the first trailer of Insomniac’s newly rebranded game Fuse will need to wait a little long. Ted Price, the CEO and Founder of Insomniac Games, has issued a letter of apology on the Fuse website stating that the planned debut of the trailer at 2pm today will no longer happen due to a legal issue. All is not lost though, as Ted explains in his heartfelt letter to the fans.
We had an awesome trailer planned and finished. Unfortunately a last-minute legal-rights issue has prevented us from releasing the trailer as planned. EA is trying to obtain the necessary approvals and we hope to bring the trailer to you soon. After discussing internally, we wanted to stop the countdown and explain what happened.
While this is purely guess work, the obvious thing would be something to do with some licensed music being used (very similar to what happened to Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes gameplay trailer that recently emerged) but we’ll confirm this when we know. In the meantime, fans can still expect new information at 2pm today, as new screenshots and details will go live on the site (as well as hands-on previews emerging around the net.) We’ll be sure to round up all the information on the game formally known as Overstrike as soon as it appears. You can read Ted Price’s letter in full by heading over the Fuse website.
