Quantic Dream Sues French Media Over Negative Reporting

Quantic Dream Sues French Media Over Negative Reporting Quantic Dream Sues French Media Over Negative Reporting

Audureau published the report on Quantic Dream's supposed toxic working conditions to Mediapart and Canard PC, though for some reason or other the latter media outlet has not been affected by lawsuits.

In January, former employees of Quantic Dream claimed that inappropriate behaviour, sexism, and homophobia are all commonplace at the studio.

Become Human, Quantic Dream, has chose to sue French media outlets Le Monde and Mediaparts over negative press.

This report of the media outlets being sued first came from Kotaku, where it was reported David Cage said that "we're suing their journalists" during a preview appointment for Detroit: Become Human.

Kotaku's Jason Schreier happened to be in Paris last week, and had planned to meet up with Le Monde journalist William Audureau, but Audureau was forced to pull out at the last minute. 'We stick with our information'. While suing journalists is hardly a good look for the French game maker after nearly constant controversy since Paris Games Week's PlayStation showcase, Quantic Dream must have grounds to contest the allegations made in the report in order to warrant taking legal action.

Canard PC stands as the only outlet not included in the lawsuit, though it received "threatening" letters from Quantic Dream both before and after the report's publication. The company noted at the time that "further complaints will follow" to protect the company's name.

Negative reports about workplace culture or game development aren't exactly uncommon in the video game industry.

Under French defamation law, the sued outlets will be able to defend themselves by proving the allegations are true or by showing they were made in "good faith", (i.e., without "personal hostility" or malice and with a measured, objective tone and balance), according to a report by the Taylor Wessing law firm. When the case hits French courts in June, it'll be up to the journalists involved to prove that they handled the situation appropriately; corroborating source testimony and giving Quantic Dream right to reply.
