Quantic Dream Loses Libel Case To Mediapart, Wins Against Le Monde

While rumours have circulated that Quantic Dream's working on a Star Wars game, news has spread about a recent court verdict regarding a libel trial against two French publications. That was brought on by Quantic Dream's co-CEO's, Guillaume de Fondaumière and David de Gruttola (David Cage).

As reported by game worker unions Solidaires Informatique and STJV, Mediapart was cleared of these charges, where the Judge ruled their previous article was written in good faith. However, Le Monde was found guilty, stating that elements of their accusations couldn't be proven "without breaking the anonymity of their sources."

Quantic Dream Loses Libel Case To Mediapart, Wins Against Le Monde

With a decision reached on September 9th, none of the major parties involved have publicly commented on that outcome. This case goes back to 2018, when Quantic Dream sued both publications over accusations of a toxic workplace culture, alongside reports of financial malpractice.

There's not been any word on the terms of the verdict or any penalties Le Monde will occur, and with all three companies not issuing comment, it looks like this matter's been closed. Should that change, we'll keep you informed with the latest updates.
