Fans who were eagerly anticipating the release of Dark and Darker following the beta may be disappointed to hear that the future of the game is uncertain.

In response to the legal challenge, Ironmace has released a comprehensive statement addressing the allegations. The statement includes an overview of the situation, asset comparisons, a written rebuttal, and several other reports, including a sequential history of changes made to the game's code. Although the allegations from Nexon have not proven to be true, a hit like this might be costly for the Dark and Darker Developers.
