Magic: The Gathering Publishers Sue Over HEX: Shards of Fate
Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast vigorously protect our intellectual property. This infringement suit against Cryptozoic demonstrates that while we appreciate a robust and thriving trading card game industry, we will not permit the misappropriation of our intellectual property
We attempted to resolve this issue, but Cryptozoic was unwilling to settle the matter.
The suit claims that the upcoming game has multiple infringements including copyright, patent, and trade dress. It is currently in closed beta and has gained the rank of Kickstarter’s 11th most funded game reaching close to $2.3 million before running out of time.
