Richard Garriott suing NCsoft for $24m

Ultima creator accuses former employee of fraud

It looks like Ultima man Richard Garriott needs to fund his next trip into space - and he's suing former employee NCsoft to get the dosh.

According to a report on Kotaku, the Tabula Rasa creator is suing the MMO publisher for a whopping $24 million. The suit was filed in the Texas Western District Court yesterday, with Garriott accusing NCsoft of "fraud".


Garriott split from NCsoft late last year after his latest MMO Tabula Rasa failed to perform at retail. We're not law experts, but we imagine Garriott's probably not very happy about what happened there... all will become clear soon.

NCsoft is yet to comment on the story.
