Some time ago we wrote about the problems of the studio staff Motorsport Games: due to salary delays, they began to threaten to leak the source code of a number of games and even planned to sue. Portal Insider Gaming talked to a number of developers and learned that not everything is so bad.
The leak of the source code, as it turned out, was threatened by a single employee of the studio. And his colleagues did not support such extreme measures, recalling that this is a criminal offense. As it turned out, the employee himself viewed his threat more as an ultimatum to management than as a plan of action. According to him, he filed a lawsuit, but it was not possible to confirm this.
